Our Huber VRB-G is a replica of the classic Granada style Mastertone banjo, associated in the past with such stellar performers as Earl Scruggs and Sonny Osborne. It features our prewar replica HR-30 tone ring and Engineered Rim. The neck and resonator are carefully crafted from the finest flamed maple, with a rich golden sunburst finish. The rosewood fingerboard and double cut headstock overlay are inlaid with the classic Hearts & Flowers pattern, and the gold plated parts feature Granada-style engraving. By default, we use a Hearts & Flowers inlay with 8 markers, but can inlay the 9 or 10 marker variations at no additional charge. Likewise, our Granada replica can be built with the Flying Eagle pattern, again with no change in total price. 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.
