Hi,

Sorry for not being able to access this info myself, but would someone be able to tell me the year one of my Vega banjos was built, at least approximately. It’s a Senator with #40894, which I believe is in the 1921-22 range. Is that correct?

Thanks!

Steve

According to this site, 1921 would be correct: vega banjos

Yea, I agree. There are ancient threads where it was argued that Vega wasn't making plectrums that early but music trades and advertisements showed that yes, they were.
