Vega Long Neck Banjo

Description Specs Media

A classic Vega Long Neck banjo, created with the inclusion of a Vega tubaphone tone ring. 

The solid brass bracket band is hand fitted to the violin grade three-ply rim. This pot design gives the Vega Long Neck Banjo a round full tone that sustains with a pure and clear sparkle.

Pete Seeger invented the long neck banjo when he decided to have a luthier cut his neck and insert 3 additional frets into the length of the banjo so that he could tune it lower to open E tuning.
