Manufacturer's Description from Fender

The Fender FB-59 Banjo is Fender's finest banjo. With a walnut resonator and brass tone ring, notes plucked on the FB-59 banjo ring loud and clear -- a must for banjo soloing over a booming bluegrass band. And with gold hardware and a rosewood fingerboard with deluxe flower pattern mother-of-pearl inlays, the FB-59 Banjo looks just as good as it sounds. A hardshell case is provided to help protect your investment as you carry this banjo wherever the road may take you.

The FB-59 Banjo is the perfect solution for anyone looking for a professional-grade banjo without spending a few grand. It packs all the features you find on high-end professional banjos at a much more affordable cost, and with Fender branding, you know you're purchasing from a company you can trust.
