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 it. Instead of tuning the newly revised banjo in G, he was able to tune it to an E (Tuned E,B,E,G#,B) which allowed him to sing in that lower key. With 3 extra frets, this low tuned banjo not only sounds beautiful as a solo instrument, but it accompanies the voice with a deep, full and sparkling sound.


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.
