SOLD!!! Vega Artist Tenor Banjo, 1926

The Vega Artist Tenor banjo was a professional grade instrument made by one of the top – from the turn of the 20th century to the 1930s – American musical instrument producers. However, just about the time the Dopyera Brothers and George Beauchamp started National to produce their new resophonic guitars, the popularity of banjos began to drop, and by the 1930s many banjo players had shifted to guitar.

National Style 1.5 Tricone Resophonic Guitar Nickel, 2004

National Style 1.5 Tricone Resophonic Guitar Nickel, 2004

This example of the National Style 1.5 Tricone Resophonic is dated 09-04 (September 2004) and is in overall good condition. The body is brass with nickel plating and a double-line engraving around the edge (the nickel plating presents a few challenges to capturing an image).   Nickel has a tendency to lightly tarnish over time; this is one of the reasons many shifted to Chrome as a longer lasting plating material.

SOLD!!! Flaxwood Rautia 2HB-T Resonator Guitar, 2012

SOLD!!! Flaxwood Rautia 2HB-T Resonator Guitar, 2012

The Flaxwood Rautia is an innovative instrument built in a small town in Finland. What makes it unusual is the use of shattered wood with other composites, and injection molding it. They have named the material, and the company, Flaxwood. Our observation has been that composites often have a variety of shortcomings, but Flaxwood seems to have addressed many of them.
