Here is a Deering Goodtime II "Special" banjo from around 2010, made in the USA. It's the original Rock Maple model with the dot neck inlay. The previous owner intended to learn banjo but never got around to it so it remains pristine and essentially is like new old stock. This is a step above the standard Goodtime in that it has the patented Goodtime tone ring and resonator. As said, this is in near-mint condition and the neck remains true and the action is low and comfortable. This banjo is in all ways ready to be played and enjoyed. Added bonus: it comes with a Deering branded gig bag (which cost close to $100 these days). If you are looking for a Deering II Special banjo at an affordable price, you won't find one nicer than this.
