The Washburn Americana B6 6-string banjo is marketed to guitarists wanting to expand their instrumental repertoire and tonal options.
This 6-string banjo is tuned and played like a guitar and enables guitarists to play a banjo part without learning to play a new instrument.
The Washburn B6 banjo features an open-back design with a mahogany resonator and an 11" notched tension hoop with 24 brackets capped with a Remo banjo head.
Other important features include a mahogany neck with a 20 fret fingerboard, smooth action die-cast tuners for tuning stability, an ebony tipped bridge for optimum tone transfer, and a satin-finished neck for smooth fretting. The banjo is equipped with D'Addario J60+ nickel strings at the factory, but the bridge is not installed.
Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s, and their instruments were considered some of the finest of their day. This heritage is not lost on the Washburn B6 6-string banjo. Contact Andy's Music and order yours today.
