For Sale: Huber VRB-4 Truetone (Offers Considered)
You are looking at an absolutely stunning Huber VRB-4. Steve Huber has outdone himself when he created this walnut beauty. Fashioned after the pre war Gibson Banjos this one is modeled after the Gibson RB-4 banjos.
It has the following features:
- Beautiful straight grain Walnut Neck
- Beautiful rosewood fingerboard with the flying Eagle inlay pattern, the Peg head also has the Flying Eagle Inlay on it.
- The Burl Walnut resonator is stunning and an absolutely beautiful dark colour. The pictures I took do not do it justice.
- Metal Hardware on it are chrome plated according to the Huber Website.
- The banjo comes with the original Superior Hardshell case that is green on the interior that Huber Banjos come in.
Note: on one of the thumbscrews that hold the resonator on the chrome plating is peeling off. I am sure you can order a new one from Steve or perhaps he could replace it for you. Just wanted to mention this
Sound. This is an extremely powerful banjo that has the driest sound of any of the banjos I have owned. It would make a great recording banjo as there are no overtones in this baby.
Here is a link to the Huber Website so you can see detailed pictures of this model and read about it as well.
Please feel free to email me about this banjo or call me at the below number.
