This is a mint 2015 VRB-3 pre-war style-3 banjo, flathead. It features a mahogany neck and resonator, with our 1930’s style Huber HR-30 Tone Ring and Huber Engineered Rim.The mahogany neck imparts a sweetness to this model with a warm blending of notes that create a classic bluegrass sound. The rosewood fingerboard and double cut headstock overlay are inlaid with a vintage style-3 pattern. It is finished with a natural mahogany stain, with antiqued binding and antique metal finish on the nickel parts. Grained ivoroid tuner buttons complete the vintage look on this model. Excellent rich tone, amazing action and very easy playing - if you have tried one you know what I mean. Green felt case is like new. Comes with 2 huber bridges and one Purcell bridge. Only minor imperfection I can find is some minor settling of lacquer into grain lines on the back of resonator. You have to hold up to sunlight to detect it. Suggested retail new = $5300US Buyer covers any shipping costs.
