Deering Classic Goodtime 5-String Banjo
The Classic Goodtime banjo is a three ply violin grade maple rim banjo that has a bright and clear tone. The Classic has a traditional look with the Deering Peg Head Shape, a Rich Brown stain, and spikes at the 7th, 9th, and 10th frets of the 5th String. The spikes enable you to expand your playing from the key of G and play in the keys of A, B and C by putting the fifth string under the spike and using a capo on the other four strings to adjust the tuning.
Here is a banjo you can have right there by your easy chair and play during commercials. It's great for hours of practice with an accurate neck that is as comfortable as can be. Most people who get a Goodtime banjo keep it because they love it even when they step up to their beautiful Deering banjo. The Goodtime banjo still maintains a special place in their lifestyle and this is why you don’t see a lot of Goodtime banjos on the used market.
The vintage look and light weight of this wonderful sounding, easy playing banjo will give you years of delight and enjoyment. Weighing in at only 4 pounds, this light weight banjo can go with you easily in travel, and even on a backpack. And, with the spikes already installed, you can easily play in several keys. Have fun where ever you go!
