SS-5 Folklore Longneck Model 5 String Banjo made in Boston, shaded
maple finish, laminated maple neck and rim.
A great sounding Vega longneck “folk” banjo from the 1960’s/ 
This is the simplest period Vega design but still built to a high
standard with their typically excellent workmanship.  These banjos were
typically tuned down to “E” in standard 5 – string “G” tuning. While
very popular in 1950’s and 60’s folk groups, the Pete Seeger-style
longneck banjos are rather obscure today and are an interesting and
versatile instrument waiting for revival.
