VEGA VEGAPHONE 5 STRING BANJO

VEGA TUBAPHONE  5 String

 

This is my personal number one favourite banjo, I spent years looking for one.

 

It’s a 1927 VegaPhone (the VegaPhone is the rare model up from the TubaPhone) Banjos don’t come any better than this the tone is unbelievable.

 

I’ve removed the VegaPhone dowel & fitted double co-ordinator rods to make the neck adjustable.

 

I’ve also added a frailing scoop & gold Gotoh tuners.

 

The valuation on this is USD $5500 but I will take AUD$3900

 

Interesting fact: I swapped 3 banjos that I built for this, my banjos normally sell AUD2500

 

Unfortunately I now find it difficult to play banjo due to arthritis.
