Whether you like to practise alone, jam with friends, or are a musician by trade, this beautiful banjo is perfect for any situation. Employing superb tonewoods, high quality appointments, and exceptional build quality, the Rocky Mountain Model 2 is a dream instrument.
As we've come to expect from Pilgrim, the build quality on offer here is truly outstanding. The most minute of details has been pored over to ensure a peerless playing feel, solid construction and a heavenly timbre. Not only will you adore playing the VPB045, you'll wonder how you ever got by without one in the first place.
The resonator is crafted from walnut, a solid tonewood that balances warm mids and crisp articulation brilliantly. The robust character of walnut makes it highly resilient, and you can rest assured that as the wood ages, it will only sound better and better. There are 24 brackets that encircle the edge of the resonator, affixing the exquisite rolled brass ring firmly. The shell is also built using walnut, adding to the already powerful tonality of the VPB045. Completing the body is a Remo Weatherking coated head, which projects the enviable timbre produced in the body with the utmost clarity.
Fitted to the body is a supple walnut 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 ornate position inlays. The neck and fingerboard partnership provides a supportive and reassuring playing experience that allows you to play through the longest of sessions in total comfort.
The Pilgrim VPB045 is equipped with geared tuning machines that allow you to adjust string tuning with ease, whilst remaining firm and true during performances. The fifth string tuning machine lies along the neck, but remains discreetly positioned so that it stays out of your way as you perform. The strings remain fixed, allowing you to play confidently. The nut at the top of the headstock aids in maintaining consistent string tension, whilst the adjustable tailpiece dutifully maintains intonation and sustain with precision.
Performing with the Pilgrim VPB045 Rocky Mountain Model 2 Closed Back 5 String Banjo is a breath-taking experience that guarantees you will never want to put it down once you pick it up. If you're looking for the perfect gigging closed-back 5-string banjo, you couldn't ask for more.
