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.

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.
