Goodtime Open Back Classic specification:

Created by customer demand, the Classic Goodtime banjos carry the features most sought after and not usually found on an introductory level line of banjos. Stained in a rich brown penetrating stain with a satin finish, inlaid with white dots, with a traditional fiddle peghead shape and planetary tuners, the Classic Goodtime banjos give the player an American made maple banjo with great sound and  beautiful aesthetics. Deering Banjos also chose to include 5th string spikes at 7, 9, and 10 for use in alternate tunings and side dots on the neck as seen on many professional level banjos to give banjo owners even more playing advantages.

The Classic Goodtime banjos were created to meet customer demands. With the more classic fiddle peghead shape (now found on all Deering Goodtime banjos, the rich dark brown stain, planetary tuning pegs and the addition of spikes at 7,9, 10 for alternate tunings, this light weight maple banjo not only meets but exceeds the features customers wanted and needed. The violin-grade maple rim is made of the same wood used on the professional level Deering models and gives the Goodtime banjo a rich, full, round note distinction.

Light weight enough to travel with, convenient enough to keep by your easy chair at home, the Goodtime Classic is great for hours of practice with a neck that is both comfortable to play and accurate to fret. With the satin finish, white inlays, and the addition of side dots for ease of play, this Goodtime banjo is not only beautiful to look at but will bring you hours of musical enjoyment.

The Deering Goodtime Classic has amazing volume and quality of tone. We set up each banjo with a precise action. An excellent fair priced American banjo.

What are Capo Spikes?
Capo Spikes enable you to ‘CAPO’ your 5th string and play your banjo in higher keys simply by pushing your 5th string underneath one of the installed capo spikes. You will also need to place a ‘regular type capo’ on your fingerboard. Eg. When your banjo is in standard tuning and tuned to an open ‘G’ chord and you want to play say in open ‘A’  you will need to put a regular capo on your 2nd fret and also need to ‘CAPO’ your 5th string… So, when you have a Capo Spike fitted to your 7th fret you can push your 5th string underneath the capo spike to raise the pitch of your 5th string to ‘A’.

We recommend spikes to be installed on your 7th fret (enabling the key of A) and 9th fret (enabling the key of B) and 10th fret (enabling the key of C)
Spikes are much neater than other 5th string capo types, they do not get in the way of your playing… but are always there when you need them.

Spikes were pioneered and used by the legendary Earl Scruggs and are used by most professional banjo players of today.
THE FITTING OF SPIKES WILL NOT INVALIDATE YOUR DEERING BANJO WARRANTY
