Description

Each banjo we supply is individually set up in our on-site Banjo Specialist Workshop here at Eagle Music. Any Banjo purchased from Eagle will be fully SET UP, checked for intonation and playability and tuned ready for playing straight out of the box!

Goodtime Parlor Specification:

The sound from this banjo is incredible! The three ply violin maple rim is the same quality as found on pre war Mastertone banjos.

The Goodtime Parlor is just plain cute... It is tuned in G just the same as a 22 fret banjo, but it is 4 inches shorter with only 19 frets. Great for teaching youngsters to play! Get them started early with a banjo they can manage and you give them a lifetime of enjoyment playing the banjo. The Goodtime Parlor is affordable and is made in the USA with quality parts and designed to play right so learning is fun and easy. Whether you have big or small hands, it is fun to play.

All Deering Goodtime ‘Leader’ Banjos are unique and exclusive to Eagle Music UK, they are built by the same Craftsmen, and with the same care and tooling that is used for building the top of the line USA Deering, Vega and Tenbrooks Banjos.

Tremendous banjo for the money, with a very handy scale length. Tunes better to A than G in my opinion, but try it yourself!
