The Pilgrim VPB100RE Morning Star Bluegrass 5 String Banjo with Gold Honey finish is an exceptional model, which is built to guarantee outstanding quality that amateurs will fall in love with, and professionals will immediately be drawn to. Pilgrim have worked tirelessly to acquire their worthy reputation as master of their craft, and the VPB100RE is a shining example of what a top-of-the-line banjo should be. If you're looking for a performance partner for life, then it doesn't get much better than this.
Pilgrim spared no expense in the design and build of the VPB100RE, employing the finest tonewoods, the most resilient and refined appointments, and marrying everything together into a single harmonious composition. Pilgrim didn't just strive to make a model that looks good though, focusing their efforts towards integrity of tone with drive and projection to match - a winning combination that all players seek. In order to achieve this, flamed maple has been employed throughout the build of this model. Highly regarded due to its efficient resonant properties that allow it to generate an enviable energy, flamed maple is supple yet strong, guaranteeing a sturdy yet lightweight feel in the hard.
The resonator is crafted from flamed maple, whilst the shell is made from a combination of solid maple, flamed maple, and faced ebony cap. As previously stated, the maple on maple combination generates energy, which is projected with vigour by the frosted Remo Weather King head. Reinforcing the power and projection is a Pilgrim Morning Star tone ring, whilst 24 brackets upholding a reassuringly firm hold. As this beauty ages, the resonator is only going to sound better and better as it develops an enriched character. A maple and ebony-tipped bridge is paired with a noknot tailpiece to create a seamless connection between the strings and body.
Flamed maple neck
Fitted to the body is a flamed maple and ebony neck, which yields a sumptuous playing feel that is backed by resilience and strength. Not matter how long your session may last, comfort is guaranteed. Married to the neck is a divine ebony fingerboard, which offers up 22 willing frets that are decorated with ornate "star" position inlays to guide your way in style. As if all this wasn’t enough, the VPB100RE offers an additional 5th string to extend the tonal range that you have to play with. Control over this string comes in the form of an easily adjustable yet reliably steadfast geared tuning peg at the 5th fret.
The Pilgrim VPB100RE Morning Star Bluegrass 5 String Banjo with Gold Honey finish offers everything a professional could want: peerless craftsmanship, sublime materials, reliable hardware, a joyful playing feel, and a timbre that is simply wonderful.
