Deering Goodtime 2 Resonator 5-String Banjo w/ Deering Bag

Condition: Excellent

This is a used 5-string resonator banjo by Deering. It was made with Blonde Maple and has a jigsaw joint at the neck. This model is particularly light for a resonator banjo, weighing in at only 5.8 pounds. All of the wood has a blonde maple satin finish, making this a beautiful, smooth blonde banjo.

This banjo comes with an original Deering Gig Bag! The bag is padded and has a black cloth interior. It also has adjustable backpack straps and an exterior storage compartment on the front.

Even in Excellent condition there's something small to note: There is some smudging in the chrome rim and other chrome components on body. (Also, there is a gap in the spot where the neck sits into the padded groove. This isn't an issue for functionality at all, just something to know). See final 2 images for these notes. Overall, this banjo is in awesome condition and plays great!
