The style-75 banjos were shipped prior to 1941 with all manner of inlay patterns, and we will be offering vintage replicas of many of them. It is finished with a natural mahogany stain, with antiqued binding and antique metal finish on the nickel parts. The VRB-75 also features prewar style amber tuner buttons.

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.
