The Pot Assembly…
The Three Ply violin maple rim is built from solid red maple (as used on pre-war classic Mastertone banjos)... The rim diameter is 279.40mm (11”) and a thickness of 14.28mm (9/16”). The solid violin maple rim also acts as the tone ring and produces a bright, clear ‘warm’ sound. 16 bracket hooks are fitted to give even tension on the tension hoop. The tailpiece is a Deering ‘Quiet’ 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 violin maple rim is natural satin finished.

The Neck Assembly… 
The LEFT HAND neck is constructed from solid rock maple. The 22-fret fingerboard is inlaid with exotic 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 geared 5th string tuner is adjacent the 5th fret. The nut is precisely cut and filed for a comfortable string action at the first position. The 5th string tuning peg has a screw to adjust the torque for positive tuning. The Traditional Shaped Banjo Peg Head (headstock) is finished in natural satin maple. The name ‘Goodtime’ is Engraved along with a Deering Star with the following inscription ‘Made In USA’. A set of Die Cast Enclosed Geared tuners are fitted. The tuners are chrome plated to match the hardware of the pot assembly. The neck is natural satin finished, to match the rim.
