The Pot Assembly…
The solid wood 3 ply rim is built from violin maple. The rim diameter is 279.40mm (11”) and a thickness of 14.28mm (9/16”). The maple rim produces a bright, clear ‘warm’ sound. 16 bracket hooks are fitted to give even tension on the tension hoop. The tailpiece is a Deering ‘Presto’ type that accepts loop-ended string. All metal work is nickel plated to a high standard. A milky 11” diameter ‘Deering’ plastic head is fitted (top side coated) along with an ebony tipped 15.87mm (5/8”) maple bridge. The maple rim is natural satin finished. The maple ply resonator has black edge binding, the resonator and maple rim are natural satin finished. The resonator flanges are nickel plated and can be removed iif you wish to convert the banjo into 'open back'.
The Neck Assembly…
The neck is attached to the pot assembly with double lag bolts. The coordinating rim rod, gives you the facility to alter the ‘action’ of the banjo to suit your particular style of playing style. The neck is constructed from solid rock maple. The 22-fret fingerboard has Hardwood Bow Tie Inlays at the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 12th, 15th, 17th, and 19th frets. The nickel silver fretwork is perfectly positioned, rounded and polished for smooth playing.
The nut is precisely cut and filed for a comfortable string action at the first position. The peg head (headstock) is finished in natural satin maple. The name ‘Goodtime’ is laser etched along with a Deering Star with the following inscription ‘Made In USA’. A set of precision geared die cast side-facing tuners are fitted. The tuners are nickel plated to match the hardware of the pot assembly. The neck is natural satin finished, to match the rim.
