Washburn B17K 5-String Tone Ring Carved Bluegrass Banjo w/Hard Case - Blem #B40
This great banjo came to us directly from Washburn as a factory blem. My tech went over it from top to bottom and it plays great and looks great. It has a few minor cosmetic flaws on the neck, and fretboard which you can see in the last two photos.These flaws are purely cosmetic and do not affect playability whatsoever.
