Description

1928 Vega Style N 5 String Conversion EXC - This is a wonderful player as well as a beautiful piece of art. The 10 15/16" head is graced with a lovely, whimsical art deco illustration of two frolicking nudes. It has the simple "rolled over" tone ring. The bottom of the metal pot cladding sits in a ledge that locates the cladding precisely on the pot. The rolled-over tone ring doesn't sit on wood, but is held a little less than a millimeter above the wood of the pot, so the simple tone ring doesn't touch wood. All the hardware is original and in good shape including the No Knot Tailpiece. There are a few nicks and scratches on the rim but nothing major. It has the original dowel stick and the serial numbers match on the dowel and the rim. (87793) The 26 1/2" scale length neck is mint and appears to be the work of Wyatt Fawley. Simple (and proper) star on the headstock and Planet style tuning pegs.

Nice newer hard shell 'bump' case. Price: $1350.00

There are lots more pictures of this banjo at my actual website which can be found at http://www.vintageinstruments.com. Thanks
