    The Concert Tone Banjo Series presents modern interpretations of the classic Fender Concert Tone banjos of the 1960s. Just like the popular instruments of that decade, today's Concert Tone banjos are finely crafted for rich sound, smooth playing feel and elegant looks. With remarkable affordability, the Standard Concert Tone 55 Banjo offers many features found on more expensive banjos, such as a rolled brass tone ring, mahogany resonator with gloss sunburst finish and aged white binding with black trim, mahogany rim, Sunburst-finish mahogany neck, and "vintage nouveau" acrylic white pearl inlay work with a "Concert Tone" block inlay at the 18th fret. Case not included.

      Comments about Fender Concert Tone 55 5-String Banjo:

      This was my first nice banjo. I've had several cheaper ones — $200 range — and wanted an upgrade. Good intonation and fairly loud and bright. I think it could be a little louder and brighter, but my louder banjo doesn't sound as good. I'm happy with and and will be until I can afford a $2,000 instrument.
