Huber VRB-G Granada-style resonator banjo. Built 2011.
Flame maple neck and resonator sunburst finish and "antiqued" binding. Rosewood fingerboard. Huber HR 30 tone ring and engineered rim. Flying Eagle inlay pattern.
Fully set up here at Avenue Guitars. Plays beautifully and sounds great--exactly what you'd expect from a Huber.
Moderate finish checking on resonator and neck, no flaking or chipping. Resonator, neck, and headstock have a number of small dents, dings, and scuffs from regular play over the years, but nothing major.
Some wear on armrest, including a couple light scratches. Otherwise all hardware is in great shape.
Includes original hardshell case.
Our Huber VRB-G is a faithful representation of the classic Granada style banjo, featuring our 1930’s style Huber HR-30 Tone Ring and Huber Engineered Rim.
The neck and resonator are carefully crafted from the finest flamed maple, with a rich golden sunburst finish. The flamed maple neck imparts a classic rich sound to the VRB-G, most reminiscent of legendary performers like Earl Scruggs and Sonny Osborne.
The rosewood fingerboard and double cut headstock are inlaid with the classic Flying Eagle or Hearts & Flowers pattern, and the gold plated parts feature Granada-style engraving.
The white/black/white binding along the neck and resonator is color-treated to approximate an aged finish, with what we call our antique binding. Reproduction “gumdrop” amber tuner buttons complete the vintage look of this model.
