The Goodtime Six was not designed to replace the guitar, but rather complement it. It affords guitarists the chance to play what they already know from a new persspective - with unimaginably creative results.
This is a 6 string, steel string banjo that tunes as a guitar, and that's built with a fast, sleek, comfortable guitar-style neck that already feels like an old friend. The Goodtime 6 has an 11 inch 3-ply violin grade maple rim with a frosted top head lending that traditional banjo snap. The addition of a piezo pickup that sits directly under the bridge makes for immediate ease recording and going out onstage.
Deering;s 41 years of banjo know how now puts a quality American made 6 string banjo within reach of any guitarist that's looking to add an authentic banjo sound to their arsenal without breaking the bank.
