Fender FB-58 Banjo

Fender

FOR YOUR BEST PERFORMANCES

The age-old tradition of the banjo stems from ancient African instruments of similar design. But it wasn’t until the early 1830s that the banjo was refined into the uniquely American musical tool that we know today. The Fender FB-58 is a fantastic banjo for players who want the best in performance and sound for country and bluegrass, and even Celtic, jazz and pop. Designed for pros and other serious players, the FB-58 looks as terrific as it sounds, with a flame maple resonator and neck, pearloid inlays and chrome hardware, and it costs considerably less than comparable high-quality banjos.

ROLLED BRASS TONE RING
The tone ring makes a major contribution to a banjo’s tonal character. This brass tone ring is rolled rather than cast, produces clearly ringing tone with great volume and brightness, and doesn’t weigh a banjo down too heavily.

MAPLE RESONATOR
Banjo resonators made of maple create a bright, snappy voice that cuts through other sounds very effectively.

PEARL ACRYLIC INLAYS
Value meets beauty in elegantly stylized position inlays that impart a touch of stylish sophistication to the fingerboard of this finely appointed instrument.
