The Goodtime 2 Zombie Killer Banjo features a blonde maple neck with engraved hardwood inlays with Zombie killing themes. The maple resonator is finished to look blood splattered and worn. The resonator flange has teeth around the outer edge like a circular saw blade with Zombie killing images cut into the flat surface of the flange. The three-ply violin maple rim is finished with a dark reddish finish. The metal parts are finished in both nickel plating and a hard blood red color. This banjo is dedicated to the youthful interest in the Zombie Apocolypse ... and for the kid in all of us. Case sold separately.

Deering banjos with the lifetime warranty are only available through authorized Deering Dealers.

IF YOU BUY A "NEW" DEERING BANJO FROM A NON-AUTHORIZED DEALER, YOU HAVE PURCHASED A USED BANJO AND HAVE NO WARRANTY. When we send a Deering banjo to an authorized dealer, only that dealer or another authorized dealer can sell that banjo as new. If an authorized dealer sells a new Deering banjo to a non-authorized dealer, the non authorized dealer becomes the first owner and he becomes the bearer of the lifetime warranty; not a new dealer by transfer. When the unauthorized dealer sells that banjo to the consumer, even if it was never played or even touched, it is a used instrument and no longer carries the lifetime warranty. This is necessary so that we know how the banjo has been cared for between the time we ship it and the time that our customers buy it. We have no way of knowing how non-authorized dealers care for their instruments because we do not communicate with them. This also honors and protects the strong relationship between Deering and its treasured network of hard working Deering dealers. For your protection against theft and to ensure immediate proof of ownership, four digits of the serial number are visible on the back of the peghead on each banjo. The full serial number is inside the resonator. When you purchase a Deering banjo and send in the warranty card you will receive a Gold Credit card style ownership/warranty card. This gold card is embossed with your name and the serial number of your new banjo for easy identification. Take your Gold Card with you to festivals or when traveling so that if your banjo is ever stolen you can easily prove it's yours.

Every bit as fun to play as I had hoped for

Comments about Deering Goodtime 2 Zombie Killer 5-String Banjo:

Solid, well made instrument. The details were looked after and the fit and feel of the neck are amazing. I play trailing style and put a GoldTone mute on the bridge to give it a plunkier tone, but that is my preference. It rings just fine without the mute. If the zombie theme does not excite you, do not buy. It is gorgeously hideous!

Comments about Deering Goodtime 2 Zombie Killer 5-String Banjo:

I just bought a Deering Zombie Killer 5 string banjo yesterday and overall am pleased very much. I've had a Gibson Mastertone and a Stewart McDonald banjo in the past. As with all instruments they usually need tweaking in the setup. I reworked the bridge by thinning and shortening to achieve the tone and action I wanted. The action was entirely too high as it was. No problem. I still have to sand and polish the sharp fret ends though. I really like the weight of it and the volume that it puts out. Overall I'll give it 5 stars with a little tarnish on the 5th one.

Comments about Deering Goodtime 2 Zombie Killer 5-String Banjo:

This is my first banjo and I purchased it based on the brand/style and the zombie themed design. I was not disappointed.

The banjo sounds great and the setup was spot on. The hand-carved fretboard markers and the stained resonator were excellent. Looks and feels like a lot of time and effort went into making this instrument.

Comments about Deering Goodtime 2 Zombie Killer 5-String Banjo:

I wanted a banjo but did not need one. I picked through all that were instock on the wall and I kept coming back to Goodtime II. It just stood out above the rest. It play's great, stays in tune and it really projects the sound. I could have gotten the basic version but what for this one kills Zombies and that may come in handy if I never use it for anything else I've got that to fall back on.
