Our Vintage Series VRB-4 is a careful replica of the classic pre war style 4 banjos, using walnut and chrome plated parts just like the originals. It features our prewar replica HR-30 tone ring and Engineered Rim.
The neck is made from the highest quality straight grain walnut, which is also used for the resonator side walls. The resonator back features gorgeous burl walnut, inlaid with twin concentric rings of stained wood marquetry. Antiqued white/black/white binding finishes both the rosewood fingerboard and resonator side walls.
The fingerboard and headstock are inlaid with the Flying Eagle pattern synonymous with style 4 banjos from the pre war era, though the Hearts & Flowers pattern can be used at no additional charge. And in keeping with the originals, all the metal parts on our VRB-4 are chrome rather than nickel plated.
