Vega Tubaphone Style M Tenor Banjo (1924)

sku: 80U-203475
This Vega Tubaphone Style M tenor banjo has a maple rim with tortoise plastic binding and a Tubaphone tone ring. The 2-piece maple neck features an ivoroid-bound 17-fret ebony fingerboard. This instrument needs some work to get back into playing shape (sold AS-IS, see Details section below), or it would make a nice 5-string conversion. Otherwise, it’s in very good+ condition.   More Details...
