At The Farm, we don’t rely on bland manufacturer stock photos - we physically photograph one of each model to show a better representation of the product. Some minor details like wood grain and color finish can, and may vary slightly from the pictures below.
Rest assured, just like on all of our serialized products each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff.
Finally! A banjo that can be played at any volume. The Goodtime acoustic electric banjo features the factory installed Kavanjo banjo head pickup system. This system allows your banjo to be plugged into a guitar amp and played at screaming levels without feedback while still maintaining its acoustic tone.
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.
Featuring a built in Kavanjo banjo pickup, this banjo sounds great played acoustically or plugged in to your favorite amp.
