This Imperial Electric is in wonderful original condition with these exceptions: the skin head was replaced by Spruce Tree Instruments in Madison, Wisconsin in 1982 with a great calf skin head; the tuners are old 'planets' probably replacing the old two-tab geared tuners in '82. There are rough spots in the finish among the tuners on the back of the peghead. An attempt at refinishing after plugging the old holes? Other than that, the overall banjo is in fantastic condition with a straight neck, good frets, great action, original hardware and no cracks or separations in the wood. It sounds as good as you would expect. I will ship it in a new Superior "bump" case.
As you all know, the Imperial Electrics from Vega are one step short of a Whyte Laydie with the scalloped tonering, 28 brackets. and 10 15/16" head. The inlays are plain and there is no bracket band. So, it is a lighter banjo preferred by many players.
Please ask for details.
