This open-backed mahogany wonder gives off a warm, mellow sound with a cast aluminum tone ring and 18 tension brackets. It's perfect for fans of old-time banjo and clawhammer style. As with all Washburn banjos, the instrument comes with a Remo head. The bridge is made of a maple base with an ebony tip. The chrome tailpiece and hardware create a simple, yet pleasing look for the instrument.
The brown stained gloss mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays and chrome die cast tuners, completing a beautiful banjo that sounds great too. The B7 will debut at Winter NAMM 2012.
