Description

c. 1948 Vega D-46 Duotron. They don’t get any cooler than this, but… they do get in a LOT better condition. Actually, rock solid and restored, but very well “loved”. Solid spruce top with laminate maple back and sides. An early Boston Vega body version. Came to me years ago with no guard or pup, and I’ve played it extensively as an acoustic archtop. I finally took the time to make a guard and matching pup housing. BTW, I put Teisco Ry Cooder gold-foil guts inside, so it has very old-school tone that I presume might be a decent match for the original. A new owner could modernize it at any time, as any high quality mini-humbucker could easily be swapped into the housing. Top looks pretty good, but there is obviously heavy player wear on the back. Player wear on the upper bass bout side too. Very solid but kind of ham-handed old neck reset. The joint is tight and the angle is great, but they should have done a better job at lining up the seam along the front. BTW, the new guard and pup housing are made of 1/8” thick solid faux tortoise acrylic, not the cheapo printed stuff. Output jack modernized to a ¼” plug, but I have the original radio plug and it’s included. Comes in a structurally solid but cosmetically rough Guild hardshell case. Nice player, and just oozes cool.

Real charges only - no added materials or handling charges. All guitars insured for full value. I will use the least expensive shipping available, although this may be slow in some circumstances (e.g. parcel post). Please let me know if you desire a faster, albeit more, expensive service. Please allow 2 - 4 days of time to prepare and pack your guitar IN ADDITION to the actual shipping transit.

NO buyer's remorse PLEASE! Damage or loss in shipping = insurance claim (with which I will be glad to assist you). At my discretion, a disatistfied buyer may return a guitar (with a thorough explanation) for a full refund of purchase price but not of shipping. I'd rather begrudgingly take back a guitar than truly disappoint a customer. If, however, I have ever made a serious error in identification/originality/damage etc. that negatively affects a guitar's value, then a full refund including shipping will be given. PLEASE file any return claims ASAP - seven days at most.
