Lightweight and tuned like a guitar, for blues, rock, jazz, or any style you want to play, the Vega 6-string is a great sounding light weight openback banjo. It that plays beautifully and gives a rich warm banjo sound reminiscent of the 6-string banjos of the early 1900's but with a greatly improved intonation and far superior tone. It has clear and elegant banjo tone with bass notes that are full and round. It's a pure delight for the guitarist as an easy instrument that is similar in weight to a guitar, fingered the same as a guitar and is compatible as a second instrument for those special songs that come alive with the smile and sparkle of a banjo tone.
This open back Vega Senator 6-string banjo has the ease of playability that all Deering banjos are noted for, and the light weight desired by many banjo players without sacrificing sound quality and sustain.
