Played by National Banjo Champion, Sonny Smith, the Washburn B160 features a rosewood fret board for superior tone and playability. The banjo has a 3 ply solid maple rim, with a Flame Maple Ply resonator, ensuring quality projection and tone. The headstock of the instrument features a White pearl "Washburn" inlay.
The M120 Mandolin is currently being played by Bluegrass Legend, Richie Owens. The Mandolin features a traditional F-style body with a solid spruce top. The body is a carved, solid, flamed maple that has a beautiful sunburst finish. The 24 fret neck, bridge, and saddle are all made out of ebony, producing a superior tone, only suitable for a player as demanding as Owens. Lastly, the Washburn M120 features gold plated hardware, and Mother of Pearl inlays.
David Karon, Director of Artist Relations comments, "We are pleased to have Sonny and Richie on our roster, and we are looking forward to other artist responses we get from these innovative new products."
Smith and Owens were integral members of the popular group the Oak Ridge Boys and are a proud addition to Washburn.
