This banjo is super easy to play and great for banjo enthusiasts of all ages. Featuring lightweight open back design, superb build, and Deering quality appointments, this banjo brings the 5-string tone home at a great price.

Lightweight Open Back Design
Ideal for children, thanks to its lightweight design, the Deering Goodtime sports an open back. Weighing at only 4 pounds, the Goodtime can travel anywhere, bringing great sound with it. The 11" 3-ply violin grade maple exhibits quality above its price range, and gives this banjo a great sound and look that will provide endless playing fun.

Superb Build
This Deering has some great build features which showcase its quality. The maple rim is lined with Deering J-Hooks, which increase stability by using a wider top—so they won't twist off the tension hoop when you tighten the head. To increase the strength of the open back design, the Goodtime banjo sports a quiet coordinator rod. Constructed from special alloy, this stabilizing piece doesn't inhibit the reverberation of the maple rim. The neck of this Deering also features a high quality maple. The dense hardwood makes for a stable top and gives a crisp tonal quality across the neck.  

Deering Quality Appointments
The Goodtime also has some real quality appointments to top off its great design. Sealed gear tuners sit atop the headstock, keeping the tune of the banjo in check and making it easy and quick to adjust. The Goodtime sports a Smile Bridge—ebony topped maple which assists in the clear response of the instrument. The strings flow over the bridge and are secured with a Quiet Tailpiece, crafted specifically to do its job without creating any additional noise.

  • 11" 3-Ply Violin Grade Maple 5-String Banjo
  • Open Back Design with Quiet Coordinator Rod
  • High Quality Maple Neck and 22-Fret Fretboard
  • Smile Bridge with Quiet Tailpiece
  • Sealed Gear Tuners

I practice every day and it has become one of my favorite activities. I took up at first because I wanted the benefits of learning a new skill. Now, I see myself becoming the next Earl Scruggs. Look out bluegrass world......all joking aside, I love it
