Huber’s 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 a pre-war 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 inalid 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. “”Please call about neck and inlay configurations on in stock Huber banjos””

When you use a standard capo on your banjo fretboard, fretting strings 1 through 4, you’ll need to capo the 5th string separately. The 5th string starts at the 5th fret. If your standard capo is on the 2nd fret, you also need to capo the 5th string two frets higher, at the 7th fret. We recommend installing railroad spike capos on frets 7 and 9 (A and B). We install them on the fretboard just under the 5th string, an idea that was developed and used by Earl Scruggs himself. We use them, and so do most of the professional players we know. When you’re playing, you don’t really notice the spikes because they’re out of the way, but they’re always there when you need them. Simply slide the 5th string under the spike. When you’re done, slide it out.”
