Hi, and thanks for looking at my ad.
I have here a new Deering Goodtime Classic Open Back Banjo and Case for sale.
I don't think Deering offers the Classic model anymore, but it is the one with Planetary Tuners and Spikes at the 7th, 9th, and 10th Frets factory installed, and is dark stained.
I can set the banjo up with one of my 100 Year Old Barnwood Spillway Dam Banjo Bridges, and if you are a Clawhammer player, I can put one of my Clawhammer Special Old Barnwood Bridges on it with the raised 5th string for you.
It will come with the Registration Card to send in to Deering, and a New Case, although it is not a Deering Case.
This would make a great Christmas Gift for that aspiring Banjo Player on your list, or for yourself if you want a great beginning Banjo, or one to take to gigs, when you don't want to take your expensive Banjo out.
This is from the Deering Web Site:
"Here is a banjo you can have right there by your easy chair and play between commercials or take out an play in a jam. It's a good bluegrass banjo, lighter weight and easy to carry. It's great for hours of practice with an accurate neck that is as comfortable as can be. You'll appreciate how light it is when you reach over to pick it up and enjoy playing it.
Most people who get a Goodtime banjo keep it because they love it even when they step up to their beautiful Deering banjo. The Goodtime banjo still maintains a special place in their life and this is why you don't see a lot of Goodtime banjos on the used market. It's a banjo you can take anywhere.
