They are now called Artisan and have stain that goes all the way through the fingerboard, though they've kept the rock maple. Fancier engraving on the head and fancy inlays on the fingerboard are nice, too. I won't rush right out and get one because I'm so happy with my 5-string Classic Special Openback. The Goodtimes have always played better "out of the box" than any other banjos under $1000, but people have been seduced by the fancy inlays, etc., on the cheap imports. Now they look very nice, too, while retaining the "old-timey" looks that make them ideal for historical reenactments and the like. http://info.deeringbanjos.com/artisan-goodtime-banjos
Now when they come out with the six-string Special Openback version, watch out!
