OVERVIEW

Pro quality and heart-stopping looks for a sweetheart of a price!

After you're finished drooling over the Fender FB58 Banjo -- the latest in Fender's bevy of bluegrass greats -- you'll want to pick it up and play it, too. It's crafted with Fender's legendary artistic mastery and attention to detail. And the fantastic looks aren't restricted to the stunning, precision-inlaid headstock and chrome-geared tuners. Check out the detailed position marker inlays in the rosewood fretboard and the brilliant flamed maple resonator with natural gloss finish. The maple neck provides a silky feel and solid intonation while the substantial die-cast metal tone ring affords increased resonance and sustain. Full 24-piece bracket ensures even tension on the banjo head, and tonal integrity.

I own Fender FB-58 for more than 3 years now. I have used it in tons of bluegrass jamming session, and here's what I think about the banjo:Fender FB-58 is simply the ultimate banjo for anybody who don't want to spend more than $2000 for a banjo. I put $2000 minimum since this FB-58 has the same tone, playibility, look and quality if not more superior with US-made banjos between $1000 to $2000. This banjo is made in Korea, which means that the cost of production goes for the material and the quality instead of expensive labor. Other banjos with similar or cheaper price are no match with this one. Those banjos will make you lose interest in playing banjo all together. Go to you local music store and do your own comparison. You'll have the same conclusion.

Had nothing but problem with this banjo as soon as I received it! Delivered to me with a broken arm rest, and 6 month after purchase, the neck cracked and fell off. Got no help from Musicians Friend or Fender...very disappointing venture!

not pleased

By kitchen picker

from Morgantown,WV

Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

After a short month of ownership,I noticed a large crack where the head meets the neck,starting under the fingerboard.I sent it directly to Fender for the warranty to replace their defective neck.My mistake.Fender refuses to fix it under their warranty.However,for the short time I was able to play it,it played very well and sounded fairly crisp with a good ring.

Buy it, this is the one

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

I originally bought the FB54 but quickly outgrew it and decided to get a banjo that I can grow with and use onstage. I have had the FB58 for about 8 months now and I honestly feel that this is the best product out there for the money, and I have played everything under 1k. There are plenty of good banjo's out there, but they all cost a couple hundred more and are not any better. I personally would not reccomend the 54 or the 55, they are not any where near the quality of the 58 and both have non standard (extra long, and narrow) necks which will make it awkward if you ever buy a better instrument. You will not be dissapointed with the FB58.

Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

excellent value for entry-level professional model banjo. Does require a good bit of fine tuning and set-up. The set-up needed requires a professional to do the work.

Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

I exchanged the taiwan head for a 5 star, it was brilliant befor, but you should hear it now, even better. I took it to a bluegrass fest in cornwall last year, and even first class pickers were blown away when they played it. As I was told it was as good as some of the very expensive Banjo`s. I also play a Martin d28, but I play the b58 more now. It will stay with me forever.

Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

I am exptremely pleased to have made the decision on the F-58 model. It looks good - feels good, and sounds good. I have two other machines, and the F-58 is worlds apart on sound and resonance
