Pilgrim Progress - 5 String Open Back G Banjo

An ideal first-time instrument with all the influence of Pilgrim design. A mahogany banjo fitted with a geared 5th string tuning peg, the VPB12 is worthy of more expensive instruments, featuring accurate tuning and improved tonal response.

Pilgrim Progress Open Back 5 String Banjo


Paul Tebbutt’s unique line of bowlback Pilgrim electro-acoustics caused a real stir in the 70s and 80s, winning numerous awards and accolades, and originals have achieved cult status among collectors.

Pilgrim guitars featured the then-innovative method of guitar building, mating a meticulously selected solid cedar top to a contoured fibreglass back to produce the ultimate blend of tonal excellence, function, and form.

Pilgrim by Vintage – a collaboration between Paul and the Vintage design team – keeps the spirit of those pioneering early Pilgrim guitars alive, with a narrow waist accentuating the pronounced body curves, the use of selected close grain cedar tops, premium quality timbers for the neck and fingerboard, and a superb overall build quality to achieve stunning looks, easy playability, projection and superlative tone.

The success of the Pilgrim by Vintage guitars has inspired the team to create a series of Pilgrim by Vintage banjos, mandolins and mandolas. Paul, an experienced, celebrated musician himself, has thrown his decades of instrument building experience into the project, and the results are nothing less than sensational.

With classic designs and organic finishes that will appeal to players of all abilities, these exciting new models feature fine tonewoods and premium hardware appointments, accurately reflecting Vintage’s reputation for performance and value, along with Paul’s unending passion for quality, playability, tradition and tone.
