Our very finest banjo. The FB-59 easily competes with much more expensive banjos, and has the loud, ringing tone you need to cut through a blazing bluegrass band.
The FB-59 features a walnut resonator, walnut neck with maple strip, 26.4” scale, wood rim, gold hardware, rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlay, a brass tone ring and a hard case.
