The vintage look and vibrant tone of the patent pending Special tone ring set this banjo apart, The Classic Goodtime Special has the look of an older banjo with the rich brown stain, Deering fiddle shaped peghead and planetary banjo tuners. The Classic Special can be heard with a sweet voice amongst all the instruments in a band. Tuned in a G Chord, with the spikes already installed, you can easily play in the keys of A, B or C. The Classic Goodtime Special is an achievement not only in making a quality banjo but in keeping the cost down and providing an instrument that will stay in tune and perform reliably because it is made out of stable woods by skilled people who know how to make banjos that play right. Made with the best economy at our factory in San Diego area of California, this is a comfortably playable banjo with a wonderfully bright tone. Padded Deering gig bag included.
