    Product Description

    The Epiphone MB100 5 String Banjo is the perfect starter or travel 5 string banjo because of its lightweight open-back design and friendly price tag. The MB100 is remarkably loud for its slightly smaller open-back body and has a nice, crisp banjo tone. This great banjo comes strung with quality steel banjo strings so it's ready to roll as soon as you pick it up!

    Epiphone MB100 5 String Banjo Features

    • Mahogany body/tone ring with an open back design
    • High quality Remo head
    • Rosewood fingerboard and bridge add warmth to the tone
    • Remarkably loud for its slightly smaller body style
    • Full scale mahogany neck
    Pioneer Spirit
    The Epiphone Company was a pioneer in the development of the American banjo, obtaining the first banjo patent in the United States in 1917, at the dawn of the banjo's impressive popularity during the first decades of the 20th Century and burgeoning Jazz age. In fact, vintage Epiphone banjos are very valuable and highly sought after by collectors today as they are considered among the finest instruments in history.

    Easy Translation
    The MB100 offers a fun, economical banjo that draws on the century's-worth banjo-making experience of Epiphone and results in a quality instrument, still made with great care. The playability comes from the fact that it still has a full-scale neck. So if you are a seasoned player just seeking fun, the ‘feel’ will be familiar to you yet it is much lighter than a banjo with full traditional construction.

    Simple Fun Made Right
    The Epiphone MB100 features a quality Remo banjo head, Mahogany body/tone ring and neck in a Natural Satin finish. It also has a Rosewood fingerboard, traditional floating Rosewood bridge, and Chrome hardware.

    Beautiful and Easy Set up

    This is a beautiful product with great action. I didn't realize that you needed to insert the bridge due to shipping considerations but it was easy to set up and tune. I also, learned that the bridge needs to set the same distance from the 12 feet as the distance between the but and the 12th fret who knew?

    Great starter banjo!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I had been playing the Epiphone MB-200 Resonator banjo for the past 2 years while learning bluegrass style. It has been an outstanding banjo, so I knew I would purchase this Epiphone MB-100 open back banjo to begin learning Clawhammer style. Make sure to also buy (or have on hand) a pack of banjo strings. The strings the factory puts on are no good (but that's the case with most inexpensive stringed instruments you buy). One of the factory strings on mine broke while I was installing the bridge. After installing new strings, I've been playing it for a week now and it sounds wonderful! It's lightweight, and (for such an inexpensive banjo) the wood grain and drum head appear to be like the more expensive models (sometimes inexpensive banjos have blemishes on the wood or the banjo head will have dark spots from being a lesser quality head). I'm incredibly happy with this MB-100 banjo!
