Deering Goodtime "BlackGrass" Special 5-String Banjo

The Goodtime Blackgrass "Special" features a Deering Flat Head Tone Ring.

The difference between the Blackgrass Special and the standard Blackgrass is the Blackgrass Special features a Deering Goodtime Special flat head tone ring which gives the banjo a brighter and richer tone. This is essentially the same banjo as the Goodtime Artisan Special banjo but with a black stain, black head, and black powder coated hardware.

The Deering Goodtime Black Grass Special with tone ring not only looks great but is the ultimate banjo for players looking for something with a darker look 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.
