The banjo pictured is the actual banjo you will receive!

At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.

This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your banjo was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.


The new Goodtime Six-R banjo comes hot on the heels of the very popular Goodtime Six open back banjo, but with a few additional features making the Goodtime Six-R ready for the big stage both in looks and in build.

Most notably, the Goodtime Six-R features a radiused midnight Maple fretboard, offering the player a striking contrast to the normal blonde of the hard rock maple neck.

Tonally, the Goodtime Six-R is elevated by the addition of a Maple resonator behind it's 11” 3-ply violin grade maple rim. Like any banjo, the addition of a resonator not only creates a hollow sound chamber, but also provides a flat surface for the sound to bounce off and project forward towards the players audience, instead of being absorbed by their body. The result is a significantly fuller, clearer and more vibrant tone.

Strings come courtesy of Elixir's XL bronze set, while other features include 6 high quality guitar style tuners, 26 ¼” scale length, Ovangkol block fretboard inlays, a Deering designed Goodtime 6 string tailpiece, frosted top head, and is equipped with a Kavanjo pickup.

The Goodtime Six banjo was not designed to replace the guitar, but rather complement it. It affords guitarists the chance to play what they already know with unimaginably creative results.

This banjo was the display at the Winter Namm Show in Anaheim. We have listed this as mint condition rather than brand new, since it was on display, but it has never been owned. Comes with Deering's 6 year warranty. Made in the USA.

You are buying a quality instrument made of wood. Each instrument goes thorough a pre-shipment inspection to ensure you are getting a great quality instrument. However, please keep in mind when instruments are shipped they can endure temperature changes as well as doing the "shipper shuffle" and therefore minor adjustments may be needed to set up the instrument to your personal preferences after receiving it.

Included in your shipment will be instructions on care and maintenance. 

We are musicians just like you and we want to help you Grow Your Passion.®
