Comments from Ross Nickerson
I've had many students start with this model with a lot of success. Its one of those banjos you just don't want to put down. I know you'll be satisfied if you choose to learn on the Deering Goodtime Banjo.
I wrote the above paragraph back when we added the Good time Banjos to the site. I just received these comments below by email. He mentions how he can't put it down. As a teacher that's one of the biggest attribute and selling points for the Goodtime 1.
.....Even in the short time that I have had it, I find it almost irresistible for its light weight and tone (just snatch it off the rack and practice for a while;) John C

We can install the Good Time Armrest on the Goodtime 1!
The Goodtime 1 does not come with the armrest like the more expensive Goodtime 2 does. We came up with a solution! We can install it for you for just the normal discount price of the armrest when we set the banjo up! There is an option to add the armrest where the add to cart button is.
ADD FACTORY INSTALLED PLANETARY TUNERS
on Deering Goodtime Banjo at BanjoTeacher.com
At Banjoteacher.com you can select the option to upgrade to planetary banjo tuners that Deering installs custom when the banjo is built. We order these special and we're told that no one else out there offers this option. Unless a Deering Goodtime peghead is cut for planetary tuners at the factory they can not be added after without small screw holes being left behind where the normal stock tuners were.

Customer email feedback
....Hello Ross, I received my Goodtime Banjo in, what to me must be, record time; not more than 48 hours after we spoke on the phone.
I love it. It’s a great, light-weight, banjo with excellent tone. Is it the equivalent of a $1,200 - $1,500 banjo? Of course not, it’s not intended to be. I have read many reviews of the Deering Goodtime and most critics seem to be missing the point: the Goodtime is not intended to be the last banjo you will ever purchase (if it is, the banjo was probably not the instrument for you in the first place).
Even in the short time that I have had it, I find it almost irresistible for its light weight and tone (just snatch it off the rack and practice for a while; much more tempting than my 12-pound alternative; although I do like my RK-35). The armrest and the capo spikes are also a welcome addition. Finally, the setup was perfect, just a quick tune and I was ready to go. It will suit my needs perfectly as my wife and I travel a lot in our RV. Thank you for recommending it!
Add this Deering Leather Banjo Strap that fits Artisan and Good Time banjo's for $29.The vast majority of leather straps do not fit behind the brackets of a Good Time or Artisan Banjo.
