For sale is an ultra rare VegaVox III 5 string in excellent condition. This banjo shows a mixture of design styles that we've never seen combined on one banjo before, but have no doubt that it is a genuine factory made VegaVox. The original Tubaphone tonering, brass band rim, and dowel stick give this banjo a bright and full tone. The neck is a joy to play up and down with no fret buzzing or other issues. Cosmetically there are only a couple of things to point out. The resonator shows some pyralin pulling away from the sides with mild cupping, and there is some very mild wear on the back of the neck. The gold plating is in good shape showing typical dulling associated with Vega banjos of this time period. The Kluson tuners are in great condition and turn smoothly. The original Lifton case is also included and in very good condition.
