FREE GUITAR INSPECTION!Your guitar will arrive ready to play.
Deering Goodtime Artisan Americana features a 12" rim, which gives the banjo a stronger bass response and a much warmer tone. The fullness and warmth of the larger rim is further enhanced by the addition of a 12" Renaissance head, which beautifully complements the banjo both visually and sonically. This Artisan version of Goodtime Americana features a rich brown stain, planetary banjo tuners and a Midnight Maple fingerboard.
- Slender rock maple neck stained rich brown
- 3-ply violin-grade maple rim stained rich brown
- 12" Renaissance medium crown head
- Planetary tuners and geared 5th string tuner
- Pressed-in nickel silver frets
- Steel coordinator rod
- Deering fiddle-shaped peghead with engraved Goodtime Americana 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.
Played with an old time-style technique, Goodtime Artisan Americana is reminiscent of banjos from a period when larger rims were more prevalent, which makes its 12" rim a great setup for playing old time music. Since the combination of the 12" rim and the Renaissance head makes for a wonderfully laid back sound, Goodtime Artisan Americana lends itself perfectly to musicians looking to use the banjo to back up a vocalist or another instrument instead of playing the lead instrument role.
Artisan Goodtime banjos embody Greg Deering's lifelong vision for the Deering Banjo Company: to make the best sounding, best playing, best looking and best value USA-made banjo that he possibly could, a never ending quest that Deering pursues every single day.
