Inspired by the movie “Zombieland” featuring Woody Harrelson whose character at one point uses a banjo to fight off Zombies, Greg Deering created the latest 5-string Goodtime banjo - the Zombie Killer Goodtime banjo.  Launched at the 2013 Anaheim NAMM (National Association of Music Merchandisers) Trade Show, the Zombie Killer banjo was a hit with general attendees and dealers alike. With a “blood splatter” resonator finish and a “saw blade-edged” brilliant red flange made with a cut-out zombie-themed pattern to match the fingerboard inlays, the Zombie Killer captures the attention of the audience without even strumming a note.

What do these two things have in common? More than you might think! Why do we even buy new shoes? I have a friend who has a terrible time finding shoes that fit properly. When he finds them, he buys multiple pairs so he has a spare when they get worn out. While I am not suggesting you buy multiple banjos all at once (though I would NEVER try to stop you), finding a banjo that “fits” properly can be an issue.

What is it about a “classic” that draws folks throughout the ages? The timeless draw of a classic of anything is that it combines in its makeup a cross-generational desire for excellence. It is as if the designer was inspired by something greater than himself to create an item that could bring out the best in others.
