Made in America. Easy to play! Durable and easy to maintain! The 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 Junior retains the groundbreaking 3-ply violin grade maple rim, which has been key in helping the Goodtime sound so good for so many players.
