OVERVIEW

A deluxe banjo with upgraded finish and appointments.

Part of Washburn's Americana Series, which celebrates the musical stylings of America's early popular music styles and the instruments that made them, the B17K-D 5-string banjo offers the right amount of style and substance to fit right in then and now. Aesthetically, it has a gorgeous flame maple back with a tobacco sunburst and gloss finish, an engraved gold armrest, gold hardware, fancy inlays and engraved heel and headstock back. The B17K-D's well-balanced tone resonates from its all-flame maple body and maple neck topped with an ebony fretboard and reliable D'Addario J60+ strings. Planetary gold tuners with separate coordinating rods ensure smooth tuning. This is definitely a banjo that'll bring attention to any performance and is a joy to play.

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 they handcraft today. Pros and amateurs alike choose a Washburn for its outstanding tone, build and value.
