Similar to open back banjos from the early 20th century.

Part of the popular Americana Series, Washburn's B7-A 5-string open-back banjo is a perfect addition to folk, old-time bluegrass and country music, or for clawhammer-style players. With an all-mahogany, open-back 5-string design reminiscent of its predecessors from the early 20th century, the B7-A was crafted with a Remo head for superlative tone and a maple bridge with ebony tip that offers superb tone transfer. Its chrome die-cast tuners and 5th-string geared Planetary tuner make getting ready to playing a smooth and easy process, while the nickel-plated D’Addario strings J60+ light gauge nickel strings ensure bright tone that'll last.

A case is sold separately.

Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s. These instruments were considered some of the finest of their day. This heritage is not lost in the instruments they handcraft today. Pros and amateurs alike choose a Washburn for its outstanding tone, build and value.
