We learn that Deering now makes approximately 10,000 banjos every year with prices ranging from $500 to around $1,000 for the Goodtime Banjo line, while their Deering line of premium banjos start about $2,000 on up to as high as $63,000 for a one of a kind Banjosaurus, but most are priced from $3,000 to around $7,000. My banjo is a Goodtime Classic II resonator model that lists for $929.
As you look at the photos it might give you some idea of what goes on to make a banjo, but even after being there, we saw just the basics, interesting though it was.
