Description

Deering Goodtime Two 4 String Tenor Banjo w/ Resonator 17 Fret

This American maple tenor banjo is lighter in weight with a clear tone that is warm and resonant. Because this model has a resonator it is louder than the open back model. With a neck that has been precisely fretted for intonation accuracy and a comfortable neck profile, you will find yourself playing this banjo for hours.

The Goodtime Two 17-Fret Tenor banjo is tuned in the Standard Tenor Tuning of C,G,D,A. It can also be tuned like an octave mandolin (G,D,A,E) so any mandolin player can easily pick it up and play it (change in string gauges needed).
