The VPBG26 incorporates a mahogany resonator, which delivers a rich midrange to low-end energy. The wood is treated to a protective semi-matt coating to ensure longevity, as well as guaranteeing an eye-catching finish. The more this model is played, the greater the character of the tone produced, which allows the unique timbre of every model to mature and develop its own unique tones.
Around the resonator is an aluminium shell, which secures the Remo coated head to create the delightfully articulate banjo spark. Remo know a thing or two about producing high quality, durable heads, and this one carries on their peerless tradition. The mahogany, aluminium and Remo coated head combination works wonderfully to create a solid feel during each and every performance.
The standout feature of the VPGB26 has to be the mahogany neck, with a profile that is shaped to that of a guitar - making it wider, and more accommodating. Those who find traditional banjo necks too narrow, will appreciate the freedom offered by this design. Not only that but mahogany provides a supportive and sturdy feel, inspiring confidence as you perform.
Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 19-frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way in understated style. The neck and fingerboard partnership provides a supportive and reassuring playing experience that will see you through any session.
The Pilgrim VPB003 features a Pilgrim guitar-style headstock, which is equipped with enclosed, geared, Grover-style tuning machines. These tuners allow you to make adjustments that are smooth and controlled, whilst uphold integrity with absolute precision. The nut at the top of the headstock aids in maintaining consistent string tension, whilst the adjustable bridge and fixed tailpiece partnership creates the perfect anchor point for the strings so that they are well supported, improving both intonation and sustain.
The Pilgrim VPBG26 Progress Series 6-String Guitar Banjo is a sublime instrument that offers a tonal diversity and playing experience that is unlike any other. Players who are familiar with a guitar’s neck already will appreciate the transition to this model, but anyone can make the most of the delightful tonal offerings delivered by the VPGB26.
