Deering Goodtime 2 Classic 5 String Banjo Left Handed ** Discontinued model – see Deering Goodtime Artisan range
With a Bluegrass resonator back for projection, The Classic Goodtime 2 banjo has a 3-ply violin grade maple rim and produces a bright and clear tone that projects well and is louder than an open back banjo. The Classic 2 is enhanced with a Rich Brown stain, white detailing and spikes at 7, 9, and 10. The use of spikes enables you to expand your playing from the key of G to easily play in the keys of A, B and C
Here is a banjo you can have right there by your easy chair and play between commercials or take out an play in a jam. It’s a good bluegrass banjo, lighter weight and easy to carry. 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.
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 life and this is why you don’t see a lot of Goodtime banjos on the used market. It’s a banjo you can take anywhere.
