Deering Unveil Steel String Version of Goodtime Banjo


The new Goodtime 6 is a new kind of 6-string banjo designed to bring out the creativity in the player and features all of the American craftsmanship and quality that owners of Goodtime banjos have come to expect. The new Goodtime 6 features a maple fingerboard with a 15” radius, a fast, sleek and comfortable neck profile with a 2-way adjustable truss rod. The rim of the Goodtime 6 is constructed of the same 3-ply violin grade maple that is at the heart of the entire Deering banjo line up, and it is strung with Elixir XL steel guitar strings.


The Goodtime 6 will be available in two variations – an 11” Rim model (G6S) and the Jumbo 12” rim model (G6SJ). Both models will be available with or without pickups ­ fitted and are expected to be reaching our stores this month.
