Overview

“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 with Miranda Lambert

If it's good enough to add color to Miranda Lambert hits around the world, then Washburn's Americana B16 5-string resonator banjo has got to be good enough for anyone looking to get some good pickin' in. This gorgeous banjo offers plenty of projection with its pairing of a flame maple body, maple resonator and 14-ply hardwood rim, 26.35" scale maple neckand flat ebony fretboard. The well-rounded warmth of its maple-heavy tone is complemented by the plenty of great aesthetic detailing. Thick white binding perfectly frames the dark flame maple of the sides and is a nice contrast to the tobacco sunburst of the tobacco sunburst of the back. The all-chrome hardware and fancy inlays along its fingerboard and peghead also give the Americana B16 a visual pop that harkens to a much more professional-level instrument. Other features include a bound maple neck with double adjustable tension rods, die-cast tension hoop, bell brass tone ring, clamshell tailpiece, Remo head, and 5 geared Planetary tuning machines. Put it all together and you’ve got an instrument that is comfortable to play and sure to impress on and off the stage.

The Americana B16 5-string banjo comes with its own BC82 hardshell banjo case. But when you’re not playing it, you may want to hang it on the wall, because it really is a work of art.
