Deering Artisan Goodtime Americana 12" Openback Banjo with Scooped Fretboard

This upgraded edition of Deering's popular Goodtime Americana open back banjo features a scooped fretboard for easy playing over the fretboard, as well as deluxe appointments like the Midnight Maple fingerboard. The scoop is a feature preferred by many players of old time frailing and clawhammer, not desirable for bluegrass or other styles that use the upper end of the fretboard.   More Details...
