VEGA VEGAPHONE NO. 9 DELUXE PLECTRUM BANJO – 1928
This banjo has some slightly mixed features. In most respects it appears to be a Vegaphone Deluxe model, but it lacks the abalone shell cap on the back of the rim. The gold plated and engraved hardware is correct for this model. The neck is of well figured curly maple with an elaborately carved heel. The tuning machines appear to be modern replacements, but of the correct type. The neck and resonator look to have been refinished in the past.
Overall very good to excellent condition, with a recent hard shell case. $2250
