The Pilgrim VPB007 Shady Grove Model 7 Open Back Banjo produces a bright and energetic timbre that is fantastic for performing a range of musical styles. Whether you're performing solo, accompanying a vocalist, or playing as part of an ensemble, the VPB007 is an exceptional model that is a dream to play. It is also an excellent choice for clawhammer or frailing banjo players.


The shell is built using blonde multi-ply maple, a tonewood that gives the VPB007 an underlying brightness and sparkling clarity that is infused with every note. The solid nature of the maple ensures that it will age very well, adding longevity to this already wonderful instrument. The multi-ply flexibility adds durability to the banjo during performances, so you can rest assured that the VPB007 will stand any test.

Paired with the shell is a Whyte Laydie-style tone ring, which is fixed using 24 brackets to provide stability throughout the banjo's lifespan. A Remo Weatherking Firbeskyn head produces a punchy projection that gives this beautiful banjo a delightful character. The build quality of the body, as with the rest of the banjo, is solid and inspires great confidence in your ability to play with absolute freedom.


Fitted to the body is a supple maple neck, which delivers a beautifully balanced playing feel as you glide along its length. Married to the sturdy neck is a luxurious rosewood fretboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with star position inlays. The neck and fingerboard partnership provides a supportive and reassuring playing experience that will see you through the longest of gigs, and keep you coming back for more.


The Pilgrim VPB007 is equipped with geared tuning machines that allow you to adjust string tuning with ease, whilst remaining firm and true during performances. The strings remain fixed, allowing you to play with absolute confidence. The nut at the top of the headstock aids in maintaining consistent string tension, whilst the old-style tailpiece dutifully maintains intonation precisely.

The Pilgrim VPB007 Shady Grove Model 7 Open Back Banjo is a playful instrument that suits those who are picking up the instrument for the first time, as well as seasoned professionals who demand the highest quality.
