Banjo With Resonator
Deering: ARTISAN GT SP(Item ID: ARTISAN GT SP Serial#: NNE04201901)
5-String Banjo with Midnight Maple Fingerboard and Resonator in Brown Satin Finish
From the Deering website:
"The stunning new Artisan Goodtime banjos epitomizes Greg Deerings lifelong vision for the Deering Banjo Company to make the best sounding, best playing, best looking, and best value U.S.A. made banjo that he possibly could. Pearloid vintage artisan style inlays pop off the new Midnight Maple fingerboard, while the peg head is adorned with a beautifully engraved design. The vintage look and vibrant tone of the patented Goodtime Special tone ring set this banjo apart, as it is clearly louder than the Goodtime Two.
The Artisan Goodtime Special has the look of an older banjo with the rich brown stain, Deering fiddle shaped peghead and planetary banjo tuners. The Artisan Goodtime Special can be heard with a sweet voice with sustain that compliments all the instruments in a band. Tuned to an open G Chord, with the spikes already installed, you can easily play in other keys."
