The new Vega Little Wonder is a remarkable achievement in blending a versatile, bright, responsive banjo with a very modest price. The sound of this banjo is ideal for old time music, both finger style and clawhammer, folk, classical, civil war era, ragtime and for classic turn of the century parlor music. (Nylon or gut string banjoists will find the response and character of this banjo appropriate for their styles) It is also a perfect choice for any player who wants a powerful, versatile banjo that is not too heavy. (Try this one with a few bluegrass licks and you'll see what we mean by versatile). The Little Wonder has a deep warm brown stained, three-ply rock maple rim and a rock maple neck. The satin finished neck is fitted with an ebony fingerboard, inlaid with mother-of-pearl dots. The rim has 24 brackets mounted on traditional bracket shoes. The pot has one lower coordinator rod that easily and accurately adjusts the banjo's "action" or playability. This one is equipped with Planet banjo tuning machines and a geared fifth string tuning machine for stability and ease of tuning.
The new Little Wonder blends the best of today's technology with yesterday's classic tone. Retail price is $1429. Minimum advertised price is $1079. Call us for details at 1-800-747-9980.
This is as nice an example of a Pete Seeger long neck 5 string as I have ever seen. The metal work is very bright and clean, there is no fretwear and the finish on the neck and rim are excellent to near mint. Original grover guitar style tuners and a friction 5th all work smoothly. It does have a sliding 5th capo that is visible in the photos. The serial # places it as a 1965 from the charts I referred to. Though not played much it has a very nice straight neck and good action . Playabilty 10, condition 9.5, original hard case 8.5 s/n: 125949 USED
Brand new model from Deering! In a nod to the rising popularity of old-timey music heard in movies like O Brother, Where art Thou?, Deering has introduced the Vega Olde Tyme Wonder. This is an exciting banjo for all frailing and clawhammer players. It starts with a Vega Little Wonder 3-ply maple rim and rock maple neck, both stained a gorgeous dark brown. Add to that a scooped fingerboard, planetary pegs, fiberskyn head, No-Knot tailpiece and Vega-style armrest, and you've got yourself a great old-time banjo. This one has a darker, plunkier sound than the standard Vega Little Wonder. s/n: 0940703D000
