I own about fifteen (not quite sure). Many of them are Goodtimes. I have one particular long-neck Goodtime that Greg & Janet Deering made for me after my shoulder surgery, and it's one of my favorite banjos because of its light weight and wonderful tone. I played it a lot for the last five years of my KT tenure. I would put it into the road rotation with the FLT except it only has one coordinator rod, and the Kavanjo pickup I use requires two rods for attachment and stabilization. Of all my banjos, though, my go-to for recording and road work is the "Tom Dooley Banjo," both for its tone and the fact that it is a shortened long-neck.
