    Product Description

    The B200 banjo has vintage looks but advantages of today's technology. The tree-of-life fretboard inlay, the pearl headstock design with its authentic behind-the-head tuners all harken back to the late 70s, when the company’s artist roster included the legendary Earl Scruggs. The only difference between the B200 and many of the vintage banjos on the auction sites is a layer of dust.

    Ibanez B200 Banjo Features

    • Basswood Rim
    • Rolled Brass Tone Ring
    • 11 inch Coated Remo Weatherking Head
    • Steel Tension Hoop with 24 Piece Bracket
    • Mahogany Resonator
    • Dual Coordinator Rod Construction
    • Chrome Banjo Tuners
    • Pearl Headstock and Fretboard inlay
    • High Gloss Natural Finish

    But when you hear this full-bodied instrument is when you’ll be convinced that Ibanez isn’t resting on its old school laurels. The B200’s rich voice is directly attributable to a combination of its Basswood Rim, Mahogany Resonator, Brass Tone Ring and coated Remo Weatherking head. Neck tension stays rock-solid throughout the seasons with the B200’s dual coordinator rod.

    Nice banjo after a little work

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I understand that anytime you buy a new instrument there is a little setup involved. This was a bit more than a little though. The tension ring was on crooked and one of the nuts were stripped. I had a spare and replaced it and took the ring off and retightened it properly. The fourth string didn't fit in the bridge slot and kept popping out. Easy fix to cut the slot deeper. I had to adjust the neck to fix the buzz. I also had to move the arm rest down farther because the bottom nut was blocking the resonator back from being removed. It plays nice and I'm satisfied with it now that I fixed the problems.

    Not as great as I hoped!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    The look of the banjo is very nice. But had a laundry list of problem after closer examination. The truss bar wasn't adjusted properly The frets were horrendous as far as the level was concerned. I removed the resonator and saw the tone ring was installed lopsided. The nuts on one of the coordiator rods was totally loose. All the nuts on the tuners were finger tight or less. The top wasn't adjuste evenly and was loose. I was determined to make it as good as possible. I completely tore it down and rebuilt it carefully. Leveled the frets (which took forever cause they were so bad). Adjusted the action, truss rod and put on new strings. Now its a really nice banjo. But I would not recommend one to someone who isn't capable of the work required to make it nice. Maybe I just got a bad one but I doubt it.
