Transition From Guitar To Banjo Easily - The Deering G6S-PZ Goodtime 6 String Banjo With Piezo Pickup

The Goodtime Six was not designed to replace the guitar, but rather complement it. It affords guitarists the chance to play what they already know from a new perspective - with unimaginably creative results.

This is a 6 string, steel string banjo that tunes as a guitar, and that's built with a fast, sleek, comfortable guitar-style neck that already feels like an old friend. The Goodtime 6 has an 11 inch 3-ply violin grade maple rim with a frosted top head lending that traditional banjo snap.

The addition of a piezo pickup that sits directly under the bridge makes for immediate ease recording and going out onstage. Deering's 41 years of banjo know how now puts a quality American made 6 string banjo within reach of any guitarist that's looking to add an authentic banjo sound to their arsenal without breaking the bank.
