Similar to open back banjos from the early 20th century.

Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s. These instruments were considered some of the finest of their day. This heritage is not lost in the instruments we handcraft today. Pros & amateurs alike choose a Washburn for its outstanding tone, build & value.

Perfect for fans of folk music, old-timey music and clawhammer style players, the B7 is a mahogany open back 5 string banjo. Similar in design to open back banjos from the early 20th century, it features a Remo head for best tone, maple bridge with ebony tip for superb tone transfer and chrome die cast tuners for smooth tuning. Comes strung with D’Addario strings.
