For ‘clawhammer’ banjo players who prefer a ‘scooped’ neck to play their banjos across the fretboard, Deering makes the Vega Old Time Wonder. Deering incorporates a traditional ‘scoop’ in the fingerboard, which provides more space for the fingers and thumb of the right hand to play the strings across the fingerboard, giving them maximum tonal range. 

They steam and bend the ‘Violin Grade’ maple rim and install a fiberskyn sheet over the rim, a classic ‘no-knot tailpiece’ for a traditional old-fashioned sound. This is a lightweight banjo made especially for musicians who want to hear the warmer tones that go well with a stringed violin and bass guitar. It is the softest banjo sound, a nice full tone. 

This 2020 Deering Banjo has only minimal play marks and is barely distinguishable from a new one. Comes with TFOA passport in the original Deering hardshell case.
