Product Description

Built for the guitarist who wants the sound of a banjo with the playability of a guitar! The Washburn B6 is an open back 6 string banjo which is tuned the same as guitar, it features a mahogany rim, mahogany neck with 22 fret rosewood fingerboard and smooth action diecast tuners for tuning stability. The distressed Remo head looks cool and has a warmer, fuller tone. It supports an ebony tipped bridge for best transfer of tone. The B6 comes with D’Addario strings.

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.

What is your opinion of this product?
I have been looking for a good 6 string banjo that plays well and has a good brand name to go with it. This is what i want and i think this one will suit me just fine. It looks real nice and i know it will do the job for me. It is tuned the same as a guitar and i should know cause i play guitar also and have been for years. I want to have that banjo sound and i will play it just like a guitar, and it will have that banjo sound that i want. That is what i am looking for in a banjo and it will not sound like a guitar would sound either. Can not wait to try it out and go from there with that sound of a 6 string!
