Enter to win a Goodtime openback banjo from our friends at Deering!

Handmade by Deering in the USA, Goodtimes are very popular because of their light weight (only 4 pounds!), easy-playing feel and low price. The Goodtime has a standard 11" head, a slender, fast-playing rock maple neck, and violin-grade maple rim.
