GOODTIME-GBG

Goodtime Blackgrass 5-String Resonator Banjo

The Goodtime Blackgrass is the ultimate banjo for players looking for something a little on the darker side. The pure black stain of the all-maple wood is accented with matte black hardware and a black head which combine to put a dark twist on an otherwise traditional instrument. 

Built exclusively by Deering Banjo Co, the Blackgrass is built in the same San Diego factory as all other Deering models and has a familiar Goodtime vibe that echoes some of the aesthetics as the new Goodtime Artisan line. The Midnight Maple fingerboard is inlaid with Artisan-style Pearloid inlays and the banjo still features the ever-present 3-ply violin grade maple for optimum tone and resonance.

So whether you are a true picker, a punk rocker or a punk picker…if you are looking for banjo with a bit more bite in the looks department, look no further than the Blackgrass.
