Vega Electric Banjo Guitar. I was told by the person I bought it from, this was made in 1925. A knowledgeable individual here on BHO stated he believes it to be made in 1923.
Rim is 11&13/16. Tailpiece is original, to the best of my knowledge.
I believe tuners are original. The 3rd tuner will need some attention, has recently started to slip. I have not tried to fix this in myself.
It currently has a calfskin head . Starting to sag a bit but I use it.
It uses a 1/2 inch bridge.
Does not have armrest.
Has original case, intact. Useable, but a new case would be recommended.
It has a sweet tone, very responsive.
Itís a joy to play.
Iíve always played this in open G, like a 5 string. I once put guitar strings on it, and let some guitarists play it, and it did fine.
It has a spin on resonator, which must not have been original to the instrument, because the banjo doesnít fit in the original case with the resonator.
If you have any questions, pm me. I will be willing to discuss any questions over the phone if needed as well.
