Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck Banjo by Deering

Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck Banjo by Deering

The Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck Banjo by Deering is a modern expression of an older solution to a problem for banjo players:  playing in E on a banjo is always a challenge.   This why Pete Seeger had the long neck built for him. These are normally played with the neck capo’ed up three frets and the 5th string capo tack in use so the banjo is played in G.
