Regular price$2,119.00
  • Made In U.S.A.

The Vega Little Wonder is a versatile, bright, responsive banjo with a very modest price made in America. This banjo features a violin-grade maple neck and an 11" 3-ply violin-grade maple rim. Together they create a beautiful tone.

Please note that all our Upperline models are built to order when ordering directly through us. We recommend using the CHECK DEALER STOCK button above to find a Deering Dealer that should have this model in stock and ready to ship or contact us to discuss options.

When you step up to a Little Wonder you get a banjo featuring a durable ebony fingerboard that gives you the look and feel of a professional instrument. Both the comfortable neck and quality 11" rim are stained with a deep warm brown. The pot has a coordinator rod that easily and accurately adjusts the banjos "action″ or string height for easy playability. The peghead of the maple neck is overlaid with black and is inlaid with a white Vega logo and beautifully engraved star.

The Little Wonder is fully adjustable through the truss rod in the neck, the coordinator rod, and the Deering True Tone tailpiece. Planetary tuning machines come standard on the Little Wonder. It is bright, responsive and full of life and easy to take with you anywhere because of the lightweight.
