Deering (new) GoodTime open-back 5-string banjo, satin finish, with a slender, low-profile rock maple neck with a multi-ply birch and maple rim, standard 11” diameter, single coordinator rod and geared tuners, with zipper gigbag. These banjos are the best deal we know of in an entry level instrument. They are made in the USA, near San Diego, by one of America’s most proficient banjo companies. While extremely modest of design they sound quite good and provide one an opportunity to learn to play an instrument one will still want to own and use long after you’ve moved up the food chain into a professional quality piece. It is designed with a maple construction and its tonal prowess defies comparison with anything else on the market in its price range. Still the best deal we know of in a beginner or second banjo, this American-made, all-maple instrument looks like a banjo, plays like a banjo, and most importantly sounds like a banjo.
The Deering List Price for the banjo alone is $499 plus $75 for the optional zipper gigbag. Click Here to add Gig Bag to your shopping cart: https://mandoweb.com/Instruments/Deering-Open+Back+Gig+Bag/2863
