OVERVIEW

Ibanez returns with skill and passion to making traditional banjos.

It's been three decades since Ibanez was in the banjo business, but they're back with a bang ¦or is it a twang? 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. As of 2012 they're back at it, and in the Ibanez tradition, the B-50 delivers a sweet 5-string closed-back banjo at a price that won't break the bank. It features a 24-lug configuration and mahogany back and sides. The mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Open gear tuners lend a vintage note while keeping things in tune.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about Ibanez B50 5-String Banjo:

    I play a lot of guitar and bass. I am learning banjo now and I'm VERY happy with this B50. It stays in tune, seems well made and is bright and loud. I'll replace the strings and maybe the bridge for myself but it's really fine as it is.
    I absolutely recommend this over the other banjos near this price point. (Ive tried most)

      Comments about Ibanez B50 5-String Banjo:

      I've been playing guitar, piano and drums for years. I lead a weekly worship service with a talented praise team. I've been wanting to learn the banjo for a while and I am very satisfied with this Ibanez model; I've played Ibanez guitars and have trusted the name. They produce solid instruments!
