The newest addition to Deering’s popular USA-made Goodtime line is the Americana. Combining the Goodtime’s simple aesthetic with a larger 12” rim, Deering has made a banjo that has a more developed bass response and over-all warmth than the 11” version that has been so popular.

The Americana is available with Old-Time configuration as shown here, or in a standard format. The Old-Time features a Fibreskyn head, No Knot tailpiece, and frailing scoop, while the ‘standard’ version features a Renaissance head and standard tailpiece. All of our Deering Goodtime banjos are ordered with Planetary tuners and come with Deering-branded gigbags.
