    Comments about Deering Goodtime Midnight Special 5 string Resonator Banjo:

    Can't. Say enough good about this banjo! Good tone, stays in tune. Play it hard , stays in tune. The price is right. Spikes in neck are installed correctly and easy to use. I think it could use a wider armrest. I think it looks nice too.
