Vega Senator & Case by Deering, Scooped Fretboard

Vega tradition and Deering's innovative approach to banjo crafting meet in the Vega Senator model. The spun brass tone ring gives it a bright yet warm tone that’s ideal for old time, folk, and Civil War music. The Senator has the time honored vintage Vega peghead profile, a rich warm brown stained maple neck with an adjustable truss rod, and a 3-ply rim with dual coordinator rods. The hard, dense ebony fingerboard is inlaid with pearl dots, and a Vega star at the fifth fret. This openback banjo has the ease of playability and the light weight desired by many banjo players, without sacrificing sound quality and sustain.   More Details...
