Description

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 B6 is an open back 6 string banjo aimed at guitar players who don’t have the time or inclination to learn a new instrument, yet still crave that good ole banjo twang. 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.
