Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s. These instruments were considered some of the finest of their day. This heritage is not lost in the instruments we handcraft today. Pros & amateurs alike choose a Washburn for its outstanding tone, build & value.
The B16K is a 5 string banjo with a Flame Maple resonator finished in gloss sunburst for increased volume and projection. It features a maple neck topped with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard featuring unique deluxe pearl inlays and Planetary tuners for smooth tuning. An authentic Remo head supports an ebony tipped maple bridge for pristine articulation and a chrome armrest adds to playing comfort.
