Washburn B16K 5-String Bluegrass Banjo - Sunburst Gloss w/ Hard Case
"The B16 has been just
what I needed on tour with Miranda, from acoustic practices to arena
stages. Everybody on the tour knows its sound since I sometimes roam
the hallways picking chase music as I follow our crew around."
- CHRIS KLINE
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 we handcraft today. Pros & amateurs alike choose a Washburn for its outstanding tone, build & value.
