Description

Vega is regarded as one of the finest banjos that has been built.  This was made some time before World War 2, I think in the 1920's.

This has a very nice maple shell with a maple neck and resonator.  The resonator is finished in sunburst and has a really nice design on the back.  The fretboard is rosewood with dots.  This has all nickel hardware that I believe is all original with the exception of one missing flange piece.  This has a full size real tone ring which really gives this some great tone and volume.  This is definitely a nice tenor banjo that was made by a very reputable company many years ago.

The serial number is 98519 and the banjo includes a Gold Tone Hardshell Case.

The tuners aren't holding tune very well and I have them pretty tight already.  This really needs new tuners to be used properly.  Outside of the tuners the banjo is cleaned up very well and is set up and ready to play.  

Condition

This has been professionally cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse.  We disassembled the banjo and we buffed all of the metal with a high powered buffer.  This causes the metal to really shine.  This is so old that we couldn't get it perfect but the metal looks really good.  The finish has been waxed and the fretboard has been oiled.  This is definitely in great shape and looks really good.

The headstock had a split right down the middle which I'm guessing is from the headstock being 2 pieces and the glue got old.  We fixed that seperation but you can still see the seam. 

The frets are in really good shape, they show basically no wear at all!!  The case is also very clean.

Set Up

This has also been professionally set up at the Banjo Warehouse.  This has a new Remo Renaissance head which we set to 90 on a drum dial.  This has a Grover bridge which is set with correct intonation.  The strings are new Huber Truetone .10 gauge strings and the action is set nicely.  This plays great.

This is a super cool 1920's Vega Tenor with a full size tone ring that is cleaned and if you add new tuners it is ready to go!
