The Fender FB-59 Banjo is Fender's finest banjo. With a walnut resonator and brass tone ring, notes plucked on the FB-59 banjo ring loud and clear -- a must for banjo soloing over a booming bluegrass band. And with gold hardware and a rosewood fingerboard with deluxe flower pattern mother-of-pearl inlays, the FB-59 Banjo looks just as good as it sounds. A hardshell case is provided to help protect your investment as you carry this banjo wherever the road may take you.
Affordable Professional Banjo
The FB-59 Banjo is the perfect solution for anyone looking for a professional-grade banjo without spending a few grand. It packs all the features you find on high-end professional banjos at a much more affordable cost, and with Fender branding, you know you're purchasing from a company you can trust.
Equipped to Duel
As Fender's top-of-the-line banjo, the FB-59 sounds as good as any banjo on the market. The FB-59 conjures rich, luscious tones as you pluck its strings thanks to its walnut resonator and brass tone ring. That rich tone will surely come in handy the next time you find yourself in a duel with a rival 5-string picker.
A good folk instrument should look just as good as it sounds, bringing back memories of days gone by at first glance. And the FB-59 Banjo delivers in style with choice woods, gold hardware, and gorgeous mother-of-pearl fretboard inlays. Whether you're looking for a new instrument or a piece of multi-functional folk art, the FB-59 Banjo is a folk instrument which appeals to all the senses.
