Vega had been in the banjo business since purchasing the remains of the Fairbanks banjo company in 1904 following a devastating fire at the Fairbanks plant.  Three years after this Vega Wonder was built, the company was sold to the Martin Guitar company. The name changed hands again a few times and is now a valued part of the Deering Banjo company.

Vega Vintage Star Dobson Style Open Back Banjo by Deering

Vega Vintage Star Dobson Style Open Back Banjo by Deering

The new Vega Vintage Star open back banjo by Deering has arrived, featuring a classic Dobson-style tone ring, Ebony fingerboard and Satin finish! 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” violin grade maple rim. A knotless tailpiece tops off the set up to produce a classic old-time tone.

SOLD!!! Dave Mills 5 String Openback Banjo with Frailing Scoop, 2018

This neatly constructed Dave Mills 5 string openback banjo uses a 12 inch pot with a spun-over Maple rim and Dobson-style tone ring, and a 3-piece Maple neck with an Ebony fingerboard that carries a frailing scoop. The Maple used on the rim and neck has a very convincing Cherry stain – so convincing that even our repair shop staff thought it was cherry from a short distance!     The head uses a traditional ‘paddle’ outline.
