The perfect beginner banjo that's durable and easy to play and maintain.

The Deering Goodtime Jr. is a shorter scale version of its famous Goodtime Openback sibling, making it the perfect beginner banjo for kids or players of smaller stature who are looking to add a splash of fun to their playing. The iconic blonde maple aesthetic of the Goodtime banjos is accented in a choice of uniquely finished appointments, including the tension hoop, tailpiece and coordinator rod, as well as beautiful matching fret marker inlays. This made-in-the-USA model is easy to play, durable and easy to maintain.

The Deering Goodtime banjo produces a vibrant ringing tone from its natural finished violin grade maple rim. At only 4 pounds, the weight makes it ideal for both children and adults to play and to travel with conveniently. As you play the 19-fret, 23" scale Goodtime Jr., the medium strings offer both physical and tonal balance across the necks shorter scale, which also makes this banjo a perfect travel or camping companion. Fans of the Goodtime banjos will also be happy to know that the Jr. retains the groundbreaking 3-ply violin grade maple rim, which has been key in helping the Goodtime sound so good for so many players. Don't settle for an average time—have a Goodtime.
