Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s, and were considered to be some of the finest of their day. Washburn's B16 faithfully carrys on the heritage of it's handcrafted predecessors with it's high-quality craftsmanship & deluxe features.

The ideal banjo for discerning player, the B16 5-String Banjo offers outstanding tone, build and value. Featuring a beautiful sunburst finished, Flamed Maple resonator and a Remo banjo head, the B16 is capable of delivering those twangy and bright tones that every banjo player aspires to achieve. The 26.35" scale neck of the B16 is crafted from Maple, and then is topped off with a 22-fret Rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard houses gorgeous deluxe inlays to cater to the B16's top shelf appearance.

The B16 boasts all chrome hardware to complement this banjo's beautiful aesthetics including a chrome tension tailpiece, a chrome armrest, 24 tension brackets and chrome planetary tuners with pearloid buttons. Other features include a bell brass tone ring, a Maple bridge with an Ebony tip and a black and white truss rod cover.

The B16 comes stock with a BC82 hardshell banjo case to provide this banjo with the ultimate protection.
