Yes, Ibanez is back in the banjo biz in a big way, and this B200 is proof that theyre here to stay. The only difference between the B200 and many of the Ibby vintage banjos on the auction sites is a layer of dust. The tree-of-life fretboard inlay, the pearl headstock design with its authentic behind-the-head tuners all harken back to the late 70s, when the companys artist roster included the legendary Earl Scruggs.
But when you hear this full-bodied instrument is when youll be convinced that Ibanez isnt resting on its old school laurels. The B200s rich voice is directly attributable to a combination of its Basswood Rim, Mahogany bowl and coated Remo Weatherking head. Neck tension stays rock-solid throughout the seasons with the B200s dual coordinator rod.
