Goodtime Parlor Specification:

Whether you have big or small hands, it is fun to play.

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.

Goodtime Parlor with three ply solid violin maple rim, bow tie fingerboard inlays and 6 year guarantee. Pick it in the parlor, in the park, or any where you go. Deering's Goodtime Parlor banjo is lightweight and made with a shorter scale to meet a variety of needs for today's banjo players! Reminiscent of the shorter scale banjos that were popular in the 1890's.

The Goodtime Parlor banjo is a 19 fret, 5-string rock maple banjo that weighs only 4 pounds in the openback version and a mere 5 pounds with a resonator model.Created with a traditional fiddle style peghead bearing a Goodtime logo, this bright, sparkling banjo has good tone and projection despite its smaller size. Tuned to open G like the 22-fret version Goodtime, the tone of the Parlor Goodtime banjo is slightly brighter due to the shorter scale.

The same light gauge strings popular on all Deering banjos are used for the Parlor version so there will be no need to search for special strings to fit the banjo. This shorter scale is ideal for younger children whose naturally shorter reach has sometimes been an issue with the standard 22-fret Goodtime banjos. We ensure the best Quality, Service and Value ...your Deering Goodtime banjo will be Set up in our onsite workshop and supplied complete with a Deering presentation box, 6 year guarantee card and a Deering banjo maintenance handbook.
