Vintage Vega SS 5 Long Neck Banjo
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-06)
Price : US $599.00
Late 50s early 60s Vega long neck 5 string banjo. This banjo has been well played over the years. It shows some wear but at the same time has great patina and mojo.
The brass shows through in some areas and there are a couple of pieces of veneer missing on the headstock. The back of the neck finish is crackly, but it has a very cool vibe.
This banjo has the narrow yellow label and the serial number reflects its age. All in all, with a truss rod and the way Vega connects the neck with the pot, this is a solidly built instrument. No warping in the neck and it is a good player.
Do not bid if you if you have negative feedback as a buyer OR if you have less than 3 ebay transactions. Look at the pics. This is an as-is, no return auction. Good luck bidding. This banjo does not have a case. I got it from a guy who said it belonged to a man who played it on a river boat out of Jacksonville, Florida.
