Deering Artisan Goodtime Openback Banjo with Scooped Fretboard

This upgraded edition of Deering's popular Goodtime openback banjo features a scooped fretboard for easy playing over the neck, as well as deluxe appointments like the midnight maple fingerboard and traditional banjo tuning machines. 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. A great beginner's instrument that you won't grow out of quickly, and it's made in the USA.   More Details...
