IBANEZ B50 FIVE STRING BANJO in IBANEZ BJC BANJO CASE with PRO-SCM SETUP
It’s been more than three decades since Ibanez was in the banjo business, but they’re back with a bang! Old-timers may recall Ibanez was quite enamored with banjo-building, having even collaborated on an artist signature model with the late great Earl Scruggs. As we all know, times change and Ibanez have, after years of prompting by diehard fans, thrown their hat back into the ring.
All the Ibanez hallmarks are there, quality materials, great construction and superb sound – all at a price that won’t break the bank.
The Ibanez B50 is a sweet 5-string closed-back banjo which, combined with a PRO-SCM setup will ready to play right out of the box! If you’re a beginner or simply returning to the instrument, it doesn’t get much better than this.
