This is a nice Washburn B-16 5 string, with Washburn hard case.  Both are used, but in pretty good condition overall, relatively new head, and strings.  That is to say, replaced within the last couple of months, as was the bridge and tail piece.  It is equipt with a cast bell bronze tone ring.  Flying Eagle style fingerboard inlays.  Minor changes have been made, and are listed, and photographed.  I have a Shubb sliding 5th string capo, that comes with, but has not been installed.

Here are the details on the banjo as written in Musicians Friend;

Professional quality at an intermediate price.

The Washburn B16 Banjo has an intricate pearl-inlaid rosewood fingerboard and peghead to adorn a bound 5-piece maple neck with double adjustable tension rods. A flat tone ring lines the 14-ply hardwood rim and complements the bookmatched flamed maple banjo resonator.
