Vega Pete Seeger Long Neck Banjo 1960
Condition: very good
This is a nice example of a true American classic, the Vega Pete Seeger Long Neck Folk Era Banjo with dowel stick construction.
Here's what The Banjo Newsletter has to say about it...
In the late 1950’s most of the popular “folk” groups (Weavers, Kingston Trio, Peter Paul & Mary, Christy Minstrels, Chad Mitchel Trio, etc.) were using the longneck 5-string banjos, based after Pete Seeger’s instrument. Pete’s banjo had a Vega Tubaphone pot and a custom neck. At that time, the only company making longnecks commercially was the original Vega Company of Boston, which made the “Pete Seeger” long neck model. These banjos were in high demand then and they were hard to find, and expensive ($365 list price).
Includes a period correct chip board case.
