Vintage Vega Banjo Ukulele, 1927-1930, VGC, plays and sounds great - just like you’d expect from a Vega of that era. There isn’t a ‘model’ stamp on this one or the other I own but it is closest to a Little Wonder in attributes - and that’s a good thing. These LW style banjo ukes are hard to find. Vega also made a lower quality banjo uke without those LW upgrades. Scale is 13 3/4” and neck width at the nut including binding is just shy of 1 1/4”, a comfortable neck width. Strung with Worth CL fluorocarbon strings. 8” maple pot, ivroid bound maple neck, bone nut, Little Wonder style band/tone ring, original tuning pegs and what looks to be all original hardware. It has an ebony fingerboard with pearl position markers. It comes with a vintage hard shell slightly oversized case. Fully functioning and room for a strap and/or a sandwich. The neck SN is 97480 and the pot is hard to discern (89_ _6 I believe) and is not an exact match. That first serial number dates this uke neck to 1930 - pot to 1927. Not ideal but the real deal nonetheless in terms of quality, tone and playability. I ship insured USPS Priority and am an experienced international shipper. Timely returns honored for any reason. That’s how I like to shop. Please contact me for additional photos or with questions. Thanks for looking. Corey
