The Barnes & Mullins BJ400E Rathbone 5 String Electric Banjo is a handsome banjo with great tonal properties. Named after Rathbone Place, the London home of Messrs Barnes and Mullins in the early 1900s, it is of a traditional construction with a mahogany resonator and a striking Remo-made Black head.

In a break from tradition, this Rathbone model is equipped with a Humbucking pickup beneath the Remo head, the volume from which is controllable from a single knob on the side of the instrument. The output from the pickup is through a single jack socket at the base of the instrument.

This model is also available without an electronic pickup system. Please see: BJ400E
