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.
Just in on trade for the southpaw banjo players!
If you want a top quality reasonably priced banjo, this is the one. It's made right here in America at the Deering Banjo factory. The Goodtime openback banjo is ideal for traveling, camping, hiking, or taking to the beach. It provides a vibrant singing banjo tone. The Goodtime banjo is light enough for children to hold and play and is the perfect banjo for a child to start out with. More people succeed in learning to play when they start out on a Goodtime banjo.
The slender, fast-playing Rock Maple neck and 3-ply Maple rim, create a sparkling, sweet banjo sound with easy adjustability to keep it sounding and playing great. Geared tuners make tuning easy. The natural, blond Maple is finished in elegant satin and the metal parts are nickel plated. The Maple and Ebony bridge sits on an easy to adjust 11 inch, top-frosted head.
This is a used instrument and does show some signs of slight use, but has been fully tested and functions as expected. Please take a moment to review our pictures, as they accurately portray the true condition of the instrument.
