Washburn Sonny Smith B160 has a vintage look and many redesigned features.

For the B160, Washburn collaborated with banjo virtuoso Sonny Smith, winner of the 1998 National Banjo Championship. Sonny developed this banjo with a wider fretboard to accommodate bigger fingers, and also moved the 5th string nut between the 5th and 6th fret for improved tone, sustain and intonation. It also has a redesigned smaller headstock and is fully bound with old style inlays.
