The Goodtime series is the basic banj series of the American manufacturer Deering. Their common feature is a quality body made of three layers of maple wood (violin grade), which gives the instrument a round, full tone. Offering good playability and holding tuning beautifully, they are an ideal first choice for beginning banjo players of all ages.
The Goodtime Americana five-string banjo model is one of the so-called open-back instruments, i.e. a banjo without a resonator with an open back plate. The wider 12-inch maple body and 12-inch Renaissance bellows give the instrument a less piercing but all the more warm sound with more character in the bass frequencies. This makes it a great choice of accompaniment instrument for singers. Its maple fingerboard is fitted with twenty-two pakfong frets, and orientation around its surface is facilitated by design position markers. The strings are mounted in high-quality closed mechanisms on one side, and in a nickel-plated steel string through the maple/ebony fingerboard on the other.
All Deering instruments (from professional models to the entry-level Goodtime line) are made in Spring Valley, California, USA by skilled craftsmen. Here, each piece is given the same care and attention to meet strict quality standards.
