Goodtime Classic Special Openback

Retail: $955.00


What a great sounding traditional banjo! The Classic Goodtime Special Openback is louder than the original Goodtime model because it has the patent pending Goodtime Tone Ring and is great for players who like to jam and want to be heard amongst a crowd. The rich brown stain, planetary tuners, and Deering peghead shape gives the traditional, classic look of a vintage banjo.
This versatile banjo can be played in the keys of A, B, or C by using the spikes which are already installed and a capo. If you enjoy playing in festival campgrounds this is perfect as it weighs less than 6 lbs and you can play it all night long!

Being an openback banjo, this is great for Clawgrass because the tone ring gives it that brighter tone needed for Clawgrass and other modern openback styles.
