      Really beautiful instrument that is just as great to sit and look at as it is to play. Tone is really deep and I am loving this new one!

        Just moving up to intermediate level after one year of banjo playing. Been guitar player 40 yrs ! Satisfied with this banjo so far. I have friend with 2 pro level Alvarez banjos and the 120 was as good a sound. Playability was not quite as good but, those banjos were 30 years old.

        another great washburn banjo

        By banjo1971

        from Mount Airy , NC

        Comments about Washburn B120 Natural Distressed 5-String Banjo w/case:

        I have just purchased the new Washburn B120 and I am really impressed with this banjo. The quality and finish on this banjo is superb.The overall tone this banjo had right out of the box was great.It came with medium gauge strings which is fine but I prefer light gauge so I can do string bending better when I play.So I changed the strings and set the banjo up to my personal taste(not saying the factory set-up was not good)and the playability became perfect for me.I own about 20 banjo`s,all 1920`s to 1960`s vintage,mostly Gibson`s and Vega`s.This banjo`s tone reminds me of my 1954 Gibson RB100 because of the brass rod tone ring,which I think is great.The Washburn is just fancier looking.This is a great banjo for old time 3 finger style or clawhammer playing.I think it sounds pretty good for bluegrass style playing because it has plenty of volume.The only thing I would change if I were the Washburn company is using a bell bronze flathead tonering like they use on their B16&B17 banjos.I feel this would make it sell better to most people wanting a true bluegrass banjo.This would make a great banjo for an intermediate player and a wonderful addition to a professional players arsenal to have a banjo for getting a more balanced tone for the studio.

        My 3rd Banjo

        By DannyG

        from Huntsville, AL

        Comments about Washburn B120 Natural Distressed 5-String Banjo w/case:

        I am an intermediate banjoist, and I have to say after buying this I don't know if I will need a 4th. It is very antique looking, but I can guarantee you it is quite sturdy. I can't count how many bumps and drops I have given this work of art, but it always seems to turn out okay. I highly recoment this banjo for those who are still experimenting and aren't totally sure where thier musical path might take them.
