The first two images show the new style Goodtime 2. The other images represent the old style and are for reference only. The headstock and inlays are now the new style.

The Goodtime 2 banjo is fast and easy to play due to the slender, low profile, rock maple neck. The single coordinator rod in the pot allows the player or technician to adjust the action to suit the players needs.
The standard 11" diameter rim is a combination of birch and rock maple. The 16 brackets and standard rim diameter make head adjustments easy and simple and the availability of replacement heads is simple since the heads are the same size as almost all modern banjos (11" high crown). The maple resonator has a natural blond maple finish with a single black binding strip around the back edge. The resonator fastens to the banjo by machine screws that thread into brass wall lugs on the side walls of the resonator. Access is easy and simple. The Goodtime 2 is equipped with all geared tuning machines for easy, accurate, and stable tuning. The maple and ebony bridge and top frosted head give a crisp, bright sound.

The Goodtime 2 banjo is proof that an easy to play, good sounding, high quality, American made banjo doesn't have to be expensive. The Goodtime 2 is a resonator version of the Deering Goodtime banjo that was and is not only great sounding, economical and light weight, but extremely popular. The Goodtime 2 banjo has a rock maple neck that is slender and low profile. The frets are precision fitted directly into the rock maple neck just like on the most famous electric guitars made in the '60's (now collector's items carrying very high prices). The neck is fast and easy to fret and fits large and small hands. The tuning machines are all geared including the fifth peg. Tuning is accurate and easy. The precision fretwork gives the Goodtime 2 beautiful intonation up and down the neck. The fingering area has dot position markers of black delrin. The finish is satin in the natural rock maple blond color. The Goodtime 2 pot (or main body) assembly has a multi-ply rock maple and birch rim. The rim is laminated in the same style as the classic banjos of the 1920's and produces a sweet, clear tone that has been compared to banjos costing three times the price. The 16 brackets are held by traditional bracket shoes. The nickel plated two piece resonator flange is mounted underneath the bracket shoes and adds tone enhancing weight and a finishing touch to the appearance of the resonator/pot assembly. The maple resonator is attached to the pot by small screws through the resonator flange. This makes access to head adjustments simple and easy. The Goodtime 2 banjo is made to be played. It is designed to be the very best sounding, easy to play and adjustable banjo available for the lowest possible price. Banjos in this price range usually have thick, high gloss finishes and lots of plastic inlays; both of which are clearly for catching the buyers eye and trying to look like more expensive instruments. In every case, the tone and playability of the instruments is ignored and these banjos are frustrating to tune, adjust and play. With rims made of aluminum, they have a far less desirable tone. Deering puts all of the design and building emphasis on tone and playability. The Goodtime 2 banjos are simple cosmetically, but the tone and ease of playability far surpasses any banjo on the market at this price. Don't buy an 'empty' banjo that is made to LOOK fancy. Buy the American made and designed Goodtime 2 banjo and enjoy playing music, not just hanging your banjo on the wall. Deering Banjo Company makes the broadest line of banjos of any maker in the world. We are banjo specialists. We don't make motorcycles, guitars, and washing machines. We don't make "product", we make BANJOS and have for over 25 years. Every banjo we make gets the attention, care and affinity that you deserve in your banjo and that you expect.
