1927 Vega 5-String Electric Banjo

Photo for Ad 149468


Wonderful openback banjo that is mostly all original hardware and an original 5-string neck.

Serial number 78098 • Mahogany
10 15/16″ pot

This is a fairly rare banjo to have been made this late in the 1920’s. Mostly all original parts.

Appears to be original frets and original 5th string pip. Original 5 friction tuners work fine.

Set-up with a newer hide head and bridge.

The neck is very nice and not bowed.

Some polite cracking in the dyed pearwood fingerboard and heelcap.

This is a fine banjo that is a piece of history and also a great sounding instrument.

Comes with a hard shell case.
