Released just last year in 2020, the Deering Goodtime Jr. is the the shorter scale version of the hugely popular Goodtime Openback banjo. With its 23" scale and shorter neck, the Goodtime Jr. adds a new level of comfort and portability to the lightweight Goodtime design. On this Goodtime Jr., the iconic blonde maple aesthetic of the Goodtime banjo line is accented with Chevy Orange appointments, including the tension hoop, tailpiece and coordinator rod, as well as beautiful matching fret marker inlays.
Proudly manufactured in the USA, the Goodtime banjo produces a vibrant ringing tone from its natural finished violin grade Maple rim. The standard Goodtime weighs in under 4 pounds, and the shorter 23" scale of the Goodtime Jr. makes it the ultimate portable, on-the-go banjo—ready to bring 5-string sound wherever you need it. With such a manageable size, the Goodtime Jr. is also the perfect beginner banjo for kids or players of smaller stature who are looking to add a splash of fun to their playing!
