A lightweight bluegrass banjo with sparkling tone!
Over 100 years of Vega tradition and Deering's innovative approach to banjo crafting went into the creation of this Vega Senator 5-String Banjo. Fashioned as a bluegrass banjo with spun brass hoop and rod tone ring, a rich, warm brown stained rock maple neck with adjustable trussrod and a multi-ply rim with dual coordinator rods; the Senator has the time-honored Vega peghead profile. The hard, dense, colorful, exotic and naturally beautiful ebony fingerboard is inlaid with mother-of-pearl dots, and a Vega star at the fifth fret.
The exclusive Deering planetary pegs give you the advantage of tight and precise tuning. The frosted top head and Deering tailpiece enhance the Senator banjo's sound, characterized as a full woody tone with beautiful sparkle of clarity and the note definition desired by bluegrass players.
This Vega Senator Banjo is what many bluegrass players are looking for. It's a lightweight banjo, only 7 pounds, with just the right amount of sparkle; one that beckons the traditional player to pick it up for maximum comfort and sound.
