Deering Goodtime Blackgrass 5-String Banjo

Vintage Artisan Style Inlays

Deering Goodtime Blackgrass (As in, Bluegrass music, but in a black finish)

DESCRIPTION

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.

 

FEATURING MIDNIGHT MAPLE FINGERBOARD AND VINTAGE ARTISAN INSPIRED INLAYS!

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.
