The Pilgrim VPB1004 Morning Star Tenor Resonator Banjo with Gold Honey finish is a professional's dream, combining the finest materials and appointments, and carefully crafting them into a beautiful instrument. Whatever your purpose is - to practise at home, jam with friends, record in the studio, or take to the live stage -, the VPB1004 will guarantee that you can do it in style.

Body Construction

When Pilgrim craft their instruments, they leave no stone unturned, and always strive for perfection. The VPB1004 benefits from a selection of excellent tonewoods, which come together to create the richest timbre. The resonator is crafted from flamed maple, a solid tonewood that balances warm mids and crisp articulation brilliantly - whilst providing a sumptuous feast for the eyes at the same time. The robust character of the flamed maple guarantees a high level of resilience, making the Morning Star the ideal model for touring professionals, for whom reliability and consistency of tone is a must. As this beauty ages, the resonator is only going to sound better and better as it develops an enriched character.

Attached to the resonator - via 24 secure brackets - is a high quality Morning Star tone ring, adding weight to the banjo to create substantial depth of tone, with a fuller yet crisper response. The shell is built using solid 3-ply maple, adding to the already rich tonality of the VPB1004. Completing the body is a frosted Remo Weatherking coated head, which projects the enviable timbre produced in the body with the utmost articulation.


Fitted to the body is a supple and supportive maple neck, which guarantees a smooth and responsive playing feel along its entire length. Married to the neck is a sumptuous ebony fingerboard, which offers up 19 willing frets that are decorated with ornate "star" position inlays to guide your way in distinguished fashion. The neck and fingerboard partnership creates a reassuring playing experience that allows you to play through the longest of sessions in total comfort.


The headstock of the Pilgrim VPB1004 is home to enclosed tuning machines that allow you to adjust the tuning smoothly and easily, whilst remaining firmly secured during performances. 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 VPB1004 Morning Star Tenor Resonator Banjo with Gold Honey finish is the stuff that dreams are made of. Maximum comfortability is assured, mesmerising detail is proudly displayed for all to see, and the timbre is breath-taking - what more could you ask for?
