  • Made In U.S.A.

The new cherry version of the popular Vega Vintage Star features a quartersawn cherry neck and a 3-ply cherry rim. The cherry wood gives the banjo a distinctively classy reddish hue which will darken over time with a gorgeous patina. The beautiful aesthetics isn't the only thing the cherry wood brings to this banjo. It also gives the banjo a bit warmer tone than the standard maple version, while still maintaining plenty of brilliance.

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.

At the heart of the Vintage Star lies a stunning Dobson tone ring. Originally patented by Henry Dobson in 1881, the Dobson balances the low ends with clear highs and adds just the right amount of sustain to the banjo. The brass Dobson glows from behind the renaissance head, which itself sits on a thinner walled, 12” Cherry maple rim.  A knotless tailpiece tops off the setup to produce a classic old-time tone.

The Vintage Star features a durable, low maintenance frosty bronze powder finish, that accents the exotic smokey streaks running through the ebony of the fingerboard. The finish also is hypoallergenic, which, along with the matching wooden armrest, makes for a truly comfortable playing experience.
