Deering Artisan Goodtime 5-String Banjo

3 items left

The Deering Artisan Goodtime banjos are the brown stained version of the blonde Goodtime banjos and feature a Midnight Maple fingerboard. The Midnight Maple fingerboard is a separate maple fingerboard that is pressure stained so that the stain penetrates all the way through the wood. This will not wear off like other staining processes that just stain the outer coat of the wood.

The Artisan Goodtime banjos also feature more expensive planetary style tuners which give the banjo a traditional look. Lastly, they include 5th string capo spikes at frets 7, 9, and 10 so you can easily use a capo on your banjo to play in different musical keys.

These are made in America at the Deering Banjo shop in Southern California.

    As a rank beginner, I have much to learn and lack the knowledge and experience to offer helpful commentary. That said, the banjo came exceptionally well packed, in perfect condition, and exactly as described. It sounds great to me and its size and weight make it comfortable and manageable. I'm very happy with it and with Banjo Studio's service and follow-up on my satisfaction.

    Deering Artisan Banjo

    Called Banjo Studio and spoke with David. I already knew what I wanted, and just wanted to make sure that the store checked to make sure the banjo was set up properly. David assured me that it was part of their service, so I went ahead and ordered it. I've been thrilled with the banjo. It's so much easier to play than my old Goodtime banjo. Have been very happy with my purchase and the purchase price was competitive with every other price I've seen, I don't think Deering allows for much of a discount on their retail price, but $750 the best I could find.

    Beautiful instrument and price. I couldn't have chosen a better instrument or source. David (Banjo Studio) is widely acknowledged and respected throughout the industry, including by Deering. Am excited to begin the adventure of learning claw-hammer. Thanks for setting me out on the right foot.

    I decided on a particular banjo and BanjoStudio had the best deal by far. The whole transaction was smooth. Delivery was prompt. Communication was excellent. It doesn't get any better than BanjoStudio!
