Guitjo? Banjitar? Whatever you call them, these six-string guitar/banjo hybrids are too much fun. For songwriting and recording, they make the banjo sound accessible without having to learn the technique, but they can do so much more than that! Even though they're tuned like a regular guitar, the percussive pop of the banjo head creates something totally new, a new color in your palette. Just listen to players like Kevin Hayes of Old Crow Medicine Show—the guitjo can produce something new and different, something all its own.

Deering didn't intend the Goodtime Six to replace the guitar; they designed this six-string to complement the guitar. The Goodtime 6 affords guitarists the chance to play what they already know with unimaginably creative results.

The Goodtime Six is a 6-string banjo with steel strings you tun3e like a guitar. It has a fast, sleek, and comfortable guitar-style neck that feels like an old friend. The Goodtime Six harnesses Deering’s 48 years of banjo know-how, and Deering packs an impressive amount of quality into this American-made 6-string banjo. Like the rest of the Goodtime line, the price remains within reach. If you're looking to add an authentic banjo sound to your arsenal without breaking the bank, look no further!

The Goodtime 6 features an 11” 3-ply violin grade maple rim with a frosted top head for a traditional banjo snap.
