Paul Tebbutt, a guitar maker and accomplished banjo player, was responsible for the cult line of Pilgrim bowlback, electro-acoustics that appeared in the 1980s. Having recently reintroduced these much-missed guitars under the Pilgrim by Vintage banner, Paul has now been hard at work with the Vintage team to mastermind this new line.
With classic designs and organic finishes that will appeal to beginners, progressing players and professionals alike, the range features fine tone-woods and premium hardware appointments, and reflects Vintage’s reputation for performance and value, along with Paul’s passion for quality, playability, tradition and tone. Each of the eight new models brings something a little different to the banjo world.
