I can vividly picture the excitement of unwrapping this banjo on Christmas morning in 1966 when I was just 12 years old. Its pristine condition truly makes it feel like a time machine. The gleaming nickel-plated hardware resembles festive tree ornaments, while the 5-ply Vega rim and 11” Vegalon Weatherproof head produce a vintage sound that's a delight to play. The smooth mahogany finish lacquer allows for effortless movement along the maple neck, with no detectable fret wear and an excellent fretboard condition. While the side-tuning machines require a delicate touch, the modern armrest adds a practical touch. The original Challenge chipboard case, although showing some corrosion on the latches, remains intact and functional, enhancing the 1960s ambiance. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any inquiries or for an audio sample.
