Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s. These instruments were considered some of the finest of their day. That heritage is not lost in the instruments we handcraft today. Pros & amateurs alike choose a Washburn for its outstanding tone, build & value. The B8-PACK includes a Washburn B8 Banjo, gig bag, pitch pipe, picks, instructional book, strap, and limited lifetime warranty.
