Product Description

Washburn has given the B120 a distressed or "aged" appearance so that it has all the looks and tone of a 100 year old banjo. With it's maple resonator, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, this matte finished beauty has a vintage vibe. The rolled brass tone ring is beautifully detailed with very fine scrolling work. Combine that with the Ivory machine heads, old school neck inlays, and bronze plated hardware and you're ready for some serious pickin'.

Part of Washburn's 125th Anniversary.

4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "AAA rated product !"
Sound: over all this is a good banjo for the money ! Feature: the sound is great it doesnt have that really high tinney sound , it sounds more like the rolled brass types , it came with an awesome hardshell case that has already proved its salt ! Ease of Use: The Banjo plays quite well and the action right out of the box was not too bad at all ! The Wow Factor: it does look as if it is already a hundred years old , something like my grandfather would have handed down ! i was not a beleive until i saw it for myslef !!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Great Banjo!"
Sound: Great sound, I was using a fender banjo, not sure which model, but this thing blew it out of the water. The fender had more of a tinny sound to it, while the washburn was louder and had more of an earthy tone to it. Feature: Overall the banjo is very sweet, the only thing Im not realy happy with is the hand gaurd is slightly wabbly, but it doesnt affect playing at all, and should be able to make it stiffer with some adjustments. Also the hand gaurd has a bit of a different engraving from the tone ring, and is slightly different colored. Still looks good, but it stands out a little. Ease of Use: The action is great, easy to play vs. other banjos that I have played. I havent had to adjust anything except the bridge. great sound out of the box. Quality: I purchased a blemished model, and there are very minor things here and there, but you really need to nitpik to see much wrong with it. It is a very solid instrument. You could tell someone had played this one, because the strings had a little corrosion on them. Overall, very happy with it, and I have no doubt that It will last my lifetime. Value: Compared to what I have see out there, I think it was a good value. But I did buy the blemished one, so I saved a fair amount there. Not sure if I would have sprung for the full price banjo, but I think it is a great machine. Manufacturer Support: No The Wow Factor: It is a beautiful banjo, the colors, and engraving are very nice. Overall: I dont think I will get rid of it ever, I may buy more as I am just a beginner, but this one will last me a long time before I feel the need to get a different one.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
