There are a lot of import beginner banjos on the market, and we have tried many of them. But nothing has come close to Deering, and they are USA made. We order ours with upgraded no-knot tailpieces and frailing scoops.
GOODTIME OPENBACK BANJOS ARE LIGHTWEIGHT, WEIGHING IN AT JUST OVER 4 LBS. THEY ARE THE PERFECT BANJOS FOR BEGINNERS OR FOR THOSE WHO WANT A LIGHTWEIGHT BANJO THAT THEY CAN TAKE ANYWHERE.
