DISCONTINUED:  Deering Goodtime Solana Six Nylon String Banjo

The Deering Goodtime Solana Six nylon string banjo is Deering’s response to repeated requests from its customers to create a 6-string Goodtime banjo. The Solana Six stands out from the pack with its nylon strings, offering a sweet, mellow tone and touch response akin to a classical guitar, with the bright undertones of a banjo. It uses the new Deering 12 inch Grand pot, which adds to the warmth of the instrument.
