Absolutely pristine 11 13/16" Vega Tubaphone Style M pot. Gorgeous cherry conversion neck by the very talented Carl Arcand (Second Life Banjos) that was made for our friend Craig Evans. It has absolutely gorgeous burled wood details - peghead overlay, heelcap, binding and inlays. Carl makes some of the nicest playing (and sounding) necks I've ever played. This neck is a bit wider than normal (1 3/8 nut width) and has a 25.5” scale. The playability and sound are stunning. Probably the cleanest vintage Vega pot I've ever owned (out of 50+). Vintage skin, repro no-knot, Gotoh tuners with vintage ivoroid buttons. This banjo is an absolute gem and I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed with any aspect of it. Comes with an as-new Superior hardshell case.
