The Classic Goodtime Special Openback is louder and brighter than theoriginal Goodtime model because it has the patent pending Special ToneRing and is great for players who like to jam and want to be heard. Therich brown stain, planetary tuners, and Deering peghead shape gives theclassic look of a vintage banjo. This versatile banjo can also be playedin the keys of A, B, or C by using the spikes which are alreadyinstalled and a capo. If you enjoy playing standing up this is perfectas it weighs 6.5 lbs and you can stand up play it all night long!

Being an openback banjo, this is great for the Clawgrass style ofplaying because the tone ring gives it that brighter tone needed forClawgrass music and other modern openback styles that need a banjo withsustain that projects freely. It is first and foremost a very playableinstrument, that is built to be durable and travel easily, while being asuperb sounding banjo that pleases audiences.
