If it's good enough to add color to Miranda Lambert hits around the world, then Washburn's Americana B16 5-string resonator banjo has got to be good enough for anyone looking to get some good pickin' in. This gorgeous banjo offers plenty of projection with its pairing of a flame maple body, maple resonator and 14-ply hardwood rim, 26.35" scale maple neckand flat ebony fretboard. The well-rounded warmth of its maple-heavy tone is complemented by the plenty of great aesthetic detailing. Thick white binding perfectly frames the dark flame maple of the sides and is a nice contrast to the tobacco sunburst of the tobacco sunburst of the back. The all-chrome hardware and fancy inlays along its fingerboard and peghead also give the Americana B16 a visual pop that harkens to a much more professional-level instrument. Other features include a bound maple neck with double adjustable tension rods, die-cast tension hoop, bell brass tone ring, clamshell tailpiece, Remo head, and 5 geared Planetary tuning machines. Put it all together and you’ve got an instrument that is comfortable to play and sure to impress on and off the stage.
The Americana B16 5-string banjo comes with its own BC82 hardshell banjo case. But when you’re not playing it, you may want to hang it on the wall, because it really is a work of art.
Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s. Their earliest instruments were considered some of the finest of their day. This heritage is not lost in the instruments they continue to handcraft today. Pros and amateurs alike choose a Washburn for their outstanding tone, build and value.
