After you're finished drooling over the Fender FB58 Banjo -- the latest in Fender's bevy of bluegrass greats -- you'll want to pick it up and play it, too. It's crafted with Fender's legendary artistic mastery and attention to detail. And the fantastic looks aren't restricted to the stunning, precision-inlaid headstock and chrome-geared tuners. Check out the detailed position marker inlays in the rosewood fretboard and the brilliant flamed maple resonator with natural gloss finish. The maple neck provides a silky feel and solid intonation while the substantial die-cast metal tone ring affords increased resonance and sustain. Full 24-piece bracket ensures even tension on the banjo head, and tonal integrity.

This banjo sounds as good as it looks. It has remarkable detail, especially for an instrument in this price range. It has a bright, crisp tone, and the sustain seems to go on forever. The only beef I have is that the tuners are a little touchy, but for an instrument that looks and sounds this good and doesn't cost an arm and a leg, it's a small inconvenience that is easy to live with.
I've got nothing but great things to say about the Fender FB58 banjo. Appearance-wise this is a beautiful instrument. From the flamed maple back and maple neck to the abalone inlays set in the rosewood fretboard, this is a beautiful looking banjo. But even better, it plays like a dream. It's got a terrific crystal clear tone and loads of sustain. My favorite thing about this banjo though is the suprfast neck, perfect for belting out some of those Earl Scruggs riffs. All in all, you can't go wrong for the money. I highly recommend it.
