About this banjo
The Goodtime Six is a 6 string, steel string banjo, that tunes like your guitar and features a fast, sleek, and comfortable guitar style neck that feels like an old friend. The Goodtime Six was not designed to replace your guitar, but rather compliment it. As a guitarist, it affords you the chance to play what you already know with unimaginably creative results.
Fitted With Elixir™ XL Strings
If the strings on the Goodtime Six feel familiar, its because it comes fitted with Elixir™ XL strings as standard. Guitar players can now find a long time favorite fitted to their new Goodtime Six. The best part is the Goodtime Six will take any guitar strings with ball ends for an easy fit of whatever strings you already use!
A Neck You Just Can’t Put Down
The neck of the Goodtime Six feels like an old friend. Featuring a 1 11⁄16″ nut width and sleek, smooth profile combine to offer a neck that feels like you have been playing it for years! The hard rock maple fingerboard features a comfortable 15″ radius and is accented with hardwood classic block style inlays – a homage to some of histories most iconic guitars.
Two Way Adjustable Truss Rod
The Goodtime Six offers a first for the Goodtime Series – a 2-way adjustable truss rod. The lower tension on a 5 string banjo meant that a truss rod was never needed. However, the Goodtime Six features a high quality 2-way truss rod for easy adjustment of relief in the neck with a 9⁄64″ hex wrench.
Two Types To Choose From
The Goodtime Six banjo is available in two models, the Goodtime 6 (G6S) and the Goodtime 6 Jumbo (G6SJ). The Goodtime Six features an 11” 3-ply violin grade maple rim with a frosted top head, for a more traditional banjo snap. Meanwhile, players looking for something a little warmer, but while retaining the banjo character might consider the Goodtime Six Jumbo, which sports a larger 12” rim and renaissance head.
