Share Article

The new Goodtime Americana banjo by Deering is the most affordable 12" rim on the market.

Boldly bearing the name Americana engraved on the peghead, this newest member of the Goodtime series of banjos features the wider Grand 12ā€ rim with a rounder, warmer tone that old time banjo players have been asking for. The Goodtime Americana is particularly well suited for those who play the clawhammer/frailing style of banjo or who are looking for a greater bass response in their instrument. This banjo is created with a renaissance head that not only enhances this warmer tone, it complements the aesthetic of this banjo. Retailing for only $599, the Americana is available through all authorized Deering dealers and factory direct.

The Goodtime Americana has the same Deering slender maple neck shape known for its ease of play and is ideal for anyone to pick regardless of their hand size. The Americana also features an armrest, custom crafted Goodtime adjustable tailpiece, and full 22-fret scale. This new banjo has all the features that have made the Goodtime banjos the most popular American made banjo for over a decade. The light weight makes it easy to travel with and is ideal for those who want to take a walk on the wide side.
