Deering   Vega Little Wonder custom long Neck Banjo Reviews

Submitted by john bange (see all reviews from this person) on 4/3/2012

Where Purchased: Intermountain Banjo

Year Purchased: 2011
Price Paid: 1300 ($US)

Sound

set up with nylon harp strings, the sound is full and bright...loud enough to be heard in a band

Sound Rating: 10

Setup

very easy to set up for nylon strings...file the nut, change the Deering tail piece and add a 3/4 bridge

Setup Rating: 10

Appearance

very pretty, figured maple neck...excellent workmanship

Appearance Rating: 10

Reliability

I know the hardware will last...it's all top notch...no need for a back up banjo other than breaking a nylon string...that's what my Boston long neck is for

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

Deering has always responded fast to any question or order I placed

Customer Service: 10

Components

no weak components. I pick on the tail piece only because it will not accept nylon strings...as on my Boston, I replaced the 5th string spike with a bone pip...added a Shubb sliding 5th string capo

Components Rating: 9

Overall Comments

I love this banjo...It is nice and light, very solid I can depend on it.
It came in an good case but not an American Vintage...think I'll buy a new one

Overall Rating: 10
