Deering Banjo Company Goodtime Two Series 5-String Banjo with Resonator in Stained Rich Brown Finish

With a resonator back for projection, the American made Artisan Goodtime Two banjo has a 3-ply violin grade maple rim and produces a bright and clear tone that projects well and is louder than open-back models. Artisan Two is enhanced with a rich brown stain, white detailing, a Midnight Maple fingerboard and vintage artisan-inspired inlays. Spikes at 7, 9 and 10 allow you to expand your playing from the key of G to easily play in A, B or C.

  • Slender rock maple neck, 3-ply violin-grade maple rim and maple resonator, all stained rich brown
  • Planetary tuners and geared 5th string tuner
  • Spikes installed at 7th, 9th and 10th frets
  • Pressed-in nickel silver frets
  • Steel coordinator rod
  • 10" rim diameter, 13.875" resonator diameter
  • Deering fiddle-shaped peghead with engraved Goodtime logo
  • Deering patented Goodtime tailpiece

Please note, Deering instruments use a coated top banjo head. The manufacturing process can leave overspray on the edge of the head which rubs off during normal use. This overspray can also be removed with a microfiber cloth.

Here is a banjo you can have right there by your easy chair or take out an play in a jam. It holds its own as a bluegrass banjo for anyone looking for a lighter weight option and has the looks to boot! It's great for hours of practice with an accurate neck that is as comfortable as can be. You'll appreciate how light it is when you reach over to pick it up and enjoy playing it.
