-For Sale Huber Custom VRB – 75 in excellent condition. A tough decision, I hate to sell this banjo but have an opportunity to buy an older banjo that I have desired for some time and this is my only option. This has been my main road banjo for well over a year, I played it with the Gold Heart band and Audie Blaylock & Redline since I joined them in September of 2010. It was also used on 2 recordings ( my solo project with Patuxent Music titled "Last Chance" with Michael Cleveland, Marshall Wilborn and many more & the new Audie Blaylock & Redline cd "Going Back To Old Kentucky" with Del McCoury, Ronnie McCoury, Bobby Osborne, Glenn Duncan, Jason Carter and more). Cuts from both recordings are currently being played on various bluegrass radio stations and this is the banjo used on all cuts. The banjo is a mahogany custom with the flying eagle inlay pattern that was one of Steve Huber’s first banjos with the new Truetone engineered rim and HR-30 tone ring. It has the vintage finish nickel metal and satin finish on the neck and resonator. The only real wear on the banjo is three small marks on the back of the resonator and minor fret wear. Other than that is a well loved and cared for banjo ( I kept it in a Price flight case at all times ) The banjo has been signed by Steve Huber, Brian Sims, Kenny Ingram & Jim Mills on the inside surface of the resonator and the rim. I have been traveling extensively this year with Redline and could play the banjo at a Redline show for any prospective buyers to hear in person with the possible exception of shows I have to fly to reach. I would prefer to sell in person if possible but could possibly arrange shipping within the US.

The schedule for Audie Blaylock & Redline is found here:

The banjo can also be heard on my BHO homepage on one quick cut (I Saw the Light) recorded using a mini disc on my home music page or here:
