sku: 80U-201884
A great candidate for a five string conversion, this Vega Vegaphone Professional tenor banjo has a two-piece maple neck and a maple pie section resonator. The rim is equipped with a 10-15/16" skin head and a Tubaphone tone ring. Other features include an engraved Grover Patent Presto tailpiece, an ebony fretboard with pearl inlays, and friction tuners with ivoroid buttons. This banjo could use some work (sold AS-IS, see Details section below), but overall it’s in very good-excellent condition.
