Deering introduced its Goodtime Banjo Series in 1997, starting with one simple model that appealed not only to banjo newcomers but also to experienced players looking for an instrument that sounded and played great, something that could be taken along on vacations or played in the office at lunchtime. Since then, the Goodtime line has expanded to include lots of structural and cosmetic options, making it even easier to find the right match for every player. Deering banjos are easy to recommend for high quality, value and range of offerings. All Deering banjos are built in California.
The Goodtime “Blonde” Series banjos are Deering’s standard models, cosmetically straightforward but with a lot of appeal and value.
Deering’s new Goodtime “Artisan” Series improves upon the “Classic” series with the addition of a separate maple fretboard (using a penetrating stain so that the dark color permeates the wood) and more elaborate fretboard inlays.
All banjos are thoroughly set-up / adjusted in our shop.
Deering Goodtime banjos are priced without cases. We offer a selection of cases (hard shell cases and gig bags) at an additional discount when you purchase your banjo from us.
