OVERVIEW

Sweet-sounding banjo with stylish flair sure to impress.

It's been three decades since Ibanez was in the banjo business, but the'yre back with a bang (or is it a twang?) with the B200. Old-timers may recall Ibanez was quite enamored with banjo-building, having even collaborated on an artist signature model with the late great Earl Scruggs.

Now, with the Ibanez B200 you get a sweet 5-string closed-back banjo at a price that wont break the bank. It features a basswood rim with 24-lug configuration, a rolled brass tone ring and mahogany resonator. The mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlay. Chrome banjo tuners lend a vintage note while keeping things in tune.

      Comments about Ibanez B200 5-String Banjo:

      really nice banjo for the money. I've always had a soft spot for Ibanez guitars. This banjo, their first in years, is a nice piece of work. Great tone and it feels solid in your hands. I recommend you take to a good music store to have bridge installed and intonation set properly. My tuning keys needed tightening slightly. inlay work on neck is beautiful. very nice instrument for the low price point.
