Quick Overview

Deering Goodtime Six-R 6 String Banjo Resonator Back Banjo Made in the USA G6SR

Details

At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each product because we know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary. We want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.

The new Goodtime Six-R banjo comes hot on the heels of the very popular Goodtime Six open back banjo, but with the addition of a radiused midnight Maple fretboard, and a Maple resonator, for a significantly fuller, clearer and more vibrant tone.

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 fretoard, offering 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 1/4” scale length, Ovangkol block inlays, a Deering designed Goodtime 6 string tailpiece and frosted top head.

The Goodtime Six banjos were 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.

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.

Shipping Information

We understand getting new gear is exciting! Below is a list of points based on some frequently asked questions about shipping different products around the world:

  • Most orders ship within 24 hours of payment being received. Orders placed on Friday (after 1pm EST), Saturday, Sunday, and holidays will likely not be processed until the next business day.
  • Transit time can range from 1-5 business days according to your location. Keep in mind, it is a general transit time and can be delayed due to extreme weather and holiday rushes.
  • Everything over $99 is shipped "signature required".
  • As a majority of our orders ship via UPS, we cannot deliver to a PO box. When checking out, please ensure a physical address is presented when making a payment. Failure to do so could result in a delayed shipping time, or cancellation of order.
  • Orders shipping outside the Continental USA can only ship via air services.
  • Orders shipping to U.S. Military APO/FPO addresses, PO Boxes, and U.S. territories (Guam, Virgin Islands, etc.) are shipped by USPS (6-10 business days). International APO/FPO destinations may require additional delivery time. NOTE: Boxes over 70lbs each cannot be shipped to these locations.
  • INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: We pride ourselves on the ability to ship internationally. There are exclusions, so call us if you aren’t sure if your country is eligible for international shipment. Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and fees are NOT included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyers responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying.
