I purchased a Goodtime 2 about a year ago to be used as a porch and travel banjo. I didn't use it much at all in the first year. Compared to my other banjo it wasn't enjoyable to play.
A shoulder injury has made it the go to banjo for it's light weight. I changed the stock tuners for Gotoh planetary tuners. No more fighting to stay in tune. Tightened the head, and tinkered with the Coordinator rod. This is a whole new banjo. Woody sounding and easy to play.

There are no bad banjos. You just have to try harder with some of them.

Had one of those for years....solid as they come, and as you say, set up properly, offer a lot in return.

I think these banjos are an affordable way for a novice to get started playing. And they sound good enough the novice won't have to struggle with the music and the instrument at the same time. Problems are solved more quickly when they are dealt with one at a time.

Great banjos for the money, for sure!
