The Ibanez B200, a throwback five-string banjo that delivers timeless tone and playability. After a 30-year hiatus, Ibanez has revived their legacy of crafting premium banjos, once collaborating with the legendary Earl Scruggs himself. The B200 banjo brings that heritage to today's musician, with a basswood rim, rolled brass tone ring and mahogany resonator. Its fast-playing mahogany neck and pearl fretboard provide a familiar feel for guitarists. The Ibanez B200 lets you tap into nostalgic twang at an price that won't break the bank.

Vintage-Inspired Components Provide Classic Tone

The B200 banjo features a basswood rim with a 24-lug configuration and a rolled brass tone ring, which work together to produce a warm, crisp tone reminiscent of banjos from a bygone era. Its sapele mahogany resonator enhances projection and sustain. Chrome tuners provide rock-solid intonation while maintaining a retro aesthetic.

Fast-Playing Neck Suits Guitarists and Beginners

Ibanez leveraged their expertise crafting guitars to design the B200's fast-playing mahogany neck. Its slim nut width and medium fretboard radius feel instantly familiar to guitarists and make the banjo more accessible to beginners. An attractive pearl fretboard inlay adds a traditional touch. The cutaway provides easy access to higher frets for soloing.
