MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY
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.

    Comments about Deering Goodtime 6- String Banjo:

    I purchased a Deering Jumbo Six which is exactly like the this one here, only not advertised by GC..
    ..the only difference is the head is 1" larger at 12" instead of the 11" you get with this one here..
    ..this a well made instrument, made here in America in San Diego CA.. the people down there are
    awesome, and willing to discuss the "set-up" before they ship it to your local Guitar Center. I had
    mine set up with the KAVANJO PICK-UP in the head, @ a reasonable mark-up, but well worth it.. trying to
    amplify a banjo to compete with guitars is darn near impossible! the KAVANJO amplifies in a way that you don't lose that banjo "twang" in the process.. I play mine thru a Fishman Loud Box Artist amp and get a
    real acoustic banjo sound.. HOWEVER.. this banjo is loud enough to stay up with the guitars in a smaller
    venue.. I've been playing guitar for 50+ years, and now can play a banjo sound with a minimal learning
    curve..
