Deering banjos have always been known for their value and the company has always been working towards making not only a great playing and sounding banjo but also to make it the best looking model and the best USA made value possible, and the Artisan Goodtime banjos fulfills that vision. The Artisan Goodtime models feature improved tooling and a great classic brown stain finish along with many other upgrades from the standard Goodtime Models.
The Artisan Goodtime 5 String banjo sounds better than it looks, which is hard to believe. This awesome Deering banjo features planetary tuners and has 5th string spikes at the 7th,9th, and 10th frets making alternate tunings a breeze. This model sports a lightweight violin grade maple body that delivers the tone you expect from a USA made Deering banjo. Case sold separately.
