SOLD!! Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck Banjo by Deering

Brand: ,

Instrument Categories: ,

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.

But when you want to switch to the big, full bass growl town when playing in E, you simply un-capo and you are ready to rock and roll!

Built around the Vega Little Wonder model, the wood tone ring pot used on the Vega Woodsongs Campfire lends itself perfectly to the full bass tone of a 32.25 inch (819.15mm) scale long neck.

The Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck is sold with a Deering / Vega hard shell case.

Here’s the builder on the Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck: 

“A Mahogany, warm and woody, lightweight longneck banjo, the Woodsongs Campfire Longneck is a collaboration between Michael Jonathan of Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour and the Deerings to create a banjo like the one Michael plays that is affordable for his broad audiences. “
