Washburn B7 at NAMM

Washburn introduced a new open-back banjo, the B-7, at last week’s NAMM show in California.

The pot consists of a cast aluminum shell, with 18 tension brackets. A full-scale mahogany neck with dot inlays in the rosewood board, and to-the-side tuners is attached. All the hardware is chrome plated.

Washburn instruments are offered through a network of dealers in the US and Canada, and through select distributors worldwide.
