Deering G-17 Goodtime 17-Fret Tenor Openback Banjo

Product Information

Tuned in 5ths like a viola or cello (C,G,D,A), this banjo is a great crossover instrument for string players! Made in America at the Deering Banjo factory in California, the Goodtime openback banjo weighs about 4 pounds so it is ideal for traveling, camping, hiking, taking to the beach and provides a vibrant singing banjo tone in any situation. Also, light enough to easily hold and play and is the perfect banjo to start out with since it is fretted correctly and plays easily. The shorter 17-fret neck reduces the length of the entire banjo to just 32 inches end to end.
