1922 Vega Style X Mandolin-Banjo

Photo for Ad 173852

The Vega Company of Boston, Ma. was one of the premier manufacturers of fretted musical instruments in the 20th century.

This extremely loud top-of-the line 10 13/16” Style X mandolin-banjo incorporates the renowned Vega tubaphone tone ring. Volume and tone are not the only claim to fame of this mighty 8-string wonder. Visual appointments are remarkable as well, featuring engraved abalone peg head inlay, fretboard and heel cap inlays as well as delicately engraved silver plated gear covers. The 3-piece neck is of highly figured curly maple. The rim edges features the decorative inlaid marquetry of the Vega-Fairbanks era.

This is a rare, beautiful and valuable treasure in excellent playing condition and nearly 100 years old!

$995.00 with original hard case. stk#VGM8018
