...This is the classic American-made Deering Goodtime-Two 5-string Banjo...in LEFT-HAND!

...This was custom-made for me, and is well-considered the finest beginner banjo on the market from any manufacturer.

...Teachers praise this model for it's ease of use and learning, it's quality and craftsmanship and sound!

...It can still be used to play professionally, even tho it's a very reasonably priced base model...

...Here is some info from the website:

https://www.deeringbanjos.com/collections/goodtime-two-banjos/products/goodtime-2-banjo

"Greg Deering designed the Goodtime banjos because there were no low priced banjos of enough quality for people to actually learn on without difficulty or giving up. He remembers what it was like to want a good banjo and not be able to afford one, so his gift to others is the Goodtime banjo line. Designed for success, the Goodtime banjos are the lowest priced American-made banjos."

"Made in America. A resonator back provides more projection of sound in the Goodtime Two. We make it here in the USA, at the Deering shop with the same tooling we use to make the top-of-the-line banjos. They are so good many professionals have recorded with Goodtime banjos."

"The Goodtime Two weighs 6 lbs - about the weight of a guitar. The Goodtime Two has a natural blonde maple with a satin finish to protect it. The rich, golden tone and the reverberation off the resonator sound great. You can definitely tell a volume difference between open back and a Goodtime Two. The sound waves aren't getting trapped between you and the banjo, which makes a pretty big difference. If you want a great low priced bluegrass banjo for travel and leisure that plays correctly and is durable, this is the best buy on the market!"

"GOODTIME TWO BANJOS FEATURE A RESONATOR. A RESONATOR OF A BANJO IS THE BACK OF A BANJO THAT REFLECTS THE SOUND OUT OF THE BANJO, AWAY FROM THE PLAYER'S BODY, THUS GIVING THE BANJO A BRIGHTER AND LOUDER TONE."

...Please understand that this is a LEFT-HAND model, and requires a custom-made Left-Hand neck, as the 5th-string sticks out from the main neck, so ya cant simply switch the strings around like ya can on a guitar....

...I love the sound and feel of this banjo, and the blonde wood finish is striking to look at. It is a beautiful-looking instrument with an authentic Bluegrass sound! The main and only reason I am selling this banjo has nothing to do with any shortcomings of this instrument whatsoever. Those shortcomings are entirely my own problem. I am an old-fart, and I suffer from a lot of advanced arthritis throughout my body, and my fingers simply do not work as well as they used to! I have tried for over 2 years to make this work for me, but I cannot get my fingers to move as quickly or accurately as needed to play the banjo...( or even guitar, which is the instrument I learned on decades ago! ).

...This musical-instrument is just too good NOT to be played regularly, and so, sadly and reluctantly, I feel I have to pass it on to someone who will play it and appreciate it daily. It deserves no less than that!

...This is basically a turnkey offer, as everything one would need to start playing is included in this deal:
