For Sale: Vega VegaPhone Custom Professional #3 Original Five String Banjo Circa 1926 Mahogany






For your consideration is a one of a kind museum quality Vega, Vegaphone professional #3 resonator Banjo. I have never seen another identical model. It was ordered along with one other Vega professional five string by a professional working British musician directly from the Vega factory in 1926. He bought it as a back up and never used it. The banjo was purchased from the estate of the original owner. This is an absolutely stunning and extremely rare find. It is a sensational sounding Banjo appropriate for a multitude of styles. The Resonator is the epitome of Art Deco Elegance. The heel carving is magnificent. The neck is straight and true and the playability is excellent. It has spot on intonation. Big volume and projection fill the room when I play it and fans gesticulate and swoon wildly This is a museum quality heirloom Banjo and would be a stunning addition to your arsenal.
