With repeated requests from its customers to create a 6-string Goodtime banjo, Deering focused on giving the customers what they wanted with the Goodtime Solana 6. The Goodtime Solana 6 is a modern 6-string banjo designed to bring out the creativity in the player and features all of the American craftsmanship and quality that owners of Goodtime banjos have come to expect.The Solana 6 stands out from the pack thanks to is its nylon strings which offers the player a sweet, mellow tone akin to a classical guitar, but with the bright undertones of a banjo.The versatility of the Solana 6 is rounded off with a piezo pickup that sits directly under the patented East Indian rosewood bridge plate, formerly seen only on Deering’ Phoenix 6-string banjo. The bridge plate is placed underneath the hand crafted Deering bridge and is designed to even out the effects of the string vibration resulting in an increased sustain, decrease in boominess, and less feedback allowing the player more freedom in a live performing situation when partnered with the piezo pickup. The sound of the Solana 6 is further enhanced by the larger Grand 12Ã?ÂÂ? rim which creates ample breathing room for the natural low end of the Solana 6, making a bold statement right out of the box.The rim of the Solana 6 is constructed of the same 3-ply violin grade maple that is at the heart of the entire Deering banjo line up. The rock maple neck features East Indian Rosewood ring style inlays, a classical guitar inspired peghead, and smooth, accurate classical guitar tuners with pearloid buttons. The beautiful blonde maple of the Solana 6 is further complimented by a dark East Indian Rosewood tailpiece which bares the Deering name.Made in the U.S.A.Strings6 Nylon StringsNeckClassical Guitar Style Peghead & TunersBlonde Rock Maple Neck22 Pressed In Nickel Silver FretsRosewood and Maple Ring InlaysDurable Satin FinishTuned Like a GuitarPotGrand 12 3-ply Violin Grade Maple RimTone Enhancing Patented Bridge PlatePiezo PickupTop Frosted High Crown HeadSteel Tension Hoop16 Bracket Shoes16 Flat Hooks with 9/32Ã?³ Hex NutsEast Indian Rosewood TailpieceNickel Plated ArmrestNickel Plated HardwareTriangle Box for CarryingGig Bag or Hardshell Case Sold SeparatelyToneHas a bright sound of maple that projects well.Easy to play with clarity of note separation.TunedE, A, D, G, B, E In Standard Guitar TuningCan easily be tuned in other tunings as welles with nylon stringsDimensionsNeck Width at the Nut 2Ã?³Scale Length Nut to Bridge 26.25Ã?³Rim Diameter 12Overall Instrument Length 39Ã?³Weight Approx. 5 lbs
