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.

By munchkin

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

Review

By u7Q_1XnYM

from dalton, ga

Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

just bought mine, wanted an entry level banjo...but, this one at an almost entry-level price has the features, quality, and sound of a $3500 dollar gibson in my opinion. it has laminated sides and back, resonator is solid, all maple, and great figuring on the back and neck. look at the detail on the head and inlays in the neck. very loud and punchy, and great intonation from head to body on neck. weight is incredible, but the sound makes up for the excess. i would recommend one even without a "test-drive" if you are wanting value and dont have to have it american made; it is made in korea, but very nice.

    I bought this Fender model several years ago... Three months after purchase, during a practice session, the neck came off! Fender would not honor the warranty, so I ended up with a worthless piece of junk.

    Best Bang For Your Buck

    By GOLDTONEPLAYER

    from WV

    Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

    This banjo is one of the best banjos for your money. My brother had one and the only problems he had was the binding coming unglued. But for the price, you will not find a better banjo.

    fender fb-58- banjo

    By butch mosko

    from bluefield wv

    Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

    believe me, there is no better bluegrass sound than these new fender banjos. word of caution--make sure your head tension is at it max- after your head is tightened to its max you won't believe the sound. believe me, the major brands which i play as well have little on this new fender banjo.

    Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

    I have own several different brands of banjos. I own a Gibson Master Tone now which I purchased in 1968, I would rate the FB-58 that I have just purchased next to it in sound and quality.

    By FaucoTous

    Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

    I bought this banjo on Internet 2 months ago and started to learn... and enjoy it. I have been playing guitar for 35 years ; my Yamaha FG300 is just fantastic and I guess I will love this Banjo just as much : good, strong, warm sound.

    Comments about Fender FB58 Banjo:

    I was skeptical when I ordered this one but overwhelmingly surprised with what I got for the money. I have played the guitar (Taylor, Martin, Gibson, Yamaha, and others) for years and never played a banjo. So on a whim I ordered this one. What a great purchase!
