2014 Huber VRB-4 Custom Burled Walnut Banjo

Photo for Ad 132408


Excellent burled walnut RB-4 style banjo with radiused Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. In fabulous condition with only the slightest signs of player wear.

Exc(+) condition. Serial number 1214-151.

Very fine straight-grain Walnut neck. Resonator shows intense burl figure. Entire banjo bound with cream-black-cream binding with wooden marquetry concentric circles in back of resonator. Double-cut peghead. Ebony peghead overlay has Huber logo inlaid at top and Flying Eagle pattern pearl inlay. Radiused Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard has pearl Flying Eagle inlay pattern. 21st fret has very well done TRUETONE inlay with inlaid border around the letters.

Almost no sign of player wear… the head shows slight signs of finger position. Faintest sign of frets being played. One small mar in the center of resonator back. Otherwise, in great shape.

These Huber RB-4 models usually come with interesting Walnut in back of resonator, but this one was ordered with Strong Burl Walnut figure. Radius fingerboard is another custom feature. Lastly, many of these come with Nickel plated hardware, but this one has Chrome plating, like many of the Gibson originals.

This banjo is wonderfully resonant, and has wide range of different tonal variations possible. It sounds great, looks great, plays great.

This banjo originally cost over $5700 with all of the options.
Comes with the original hard case for only $4650.
