The Vega Little Wonder Open Back 5 String Banjo is an excellent, entry level but high quality instrument built by Deering in Spring Valley, California with all the quality of a Deering.

Built using a Maple for the rim and neck, with an Ebony fingerboard, a truss rod and 11 inch pot, the Vega Little Wonder is ideal for Frailing and Clawgrass styles. It is also available with a scooped neck. A 12 inch pot is also available, providing a deeper tone.

Includes a Vega Hardshell Case.

More From Deering on the Vega Little Wonder Open Back Banjo:

“When you step up to a Vega Little Wonder you get a banjo featuring a durable ebony fingerboard that gives you the look and feel of a professional instrument. Both the comfortable neck and quality rim are stained with a deep warm brown. The pot has a coordinator rod that easily and accurately adjusts the banjos “action″ or string height for easy playability. The peghead of the maple neck is overlaid with black and is inlaid with a white Vega logo and beautifully engraved star.

The Little Wonder is fully adjustable through the truss rod in the neck, the coordinator rod, and the Deering True Tone tailpiece. Planetary tuning machines come standard on the Little Wonder. It is bright, responsive and full of life and easy to take with you anywhere because of the light weight.”
