Modestly priced and created with a low neck profile noted for comfort and an ease of playability the polished ebony fingerboard is a dream to play. The lighter weight of the Vega Little Wonder more than meets the demands of professional tone and the ease of adjust-ability of the single coordinator rod and truss rod to set the "action" make it a combination that is hard to beat!

The bright and responsive Vega Little Wonder - Planetary Tuner Model is fitted with nickel plated planetary tuners, a geared fifth string tuner, a black peg-head overlay with white Vega letters. A Vega 'Star' is inlaid in the face of the headstock, mother of pearl dots on the polished smooth ebony fingerboard, and a satin finish.

The pot assembly is constructed with a premium quality 3-ply rock maple rim, nickel-plated hardware, strong brackets shoe construction, a 24-piece flange, a top frosted head, one piece armrest, and a classic Waverley style tailpiece. All of these elements combine to make this a versatile open-back banjo, with a classic bright solid sound. A very pleasing banjo for all styles of banjo playing.


The 3-ply violin maple rim, top frosted head and classic waverley style tailpiece gives a full bodied bright sound making it ideal for most styles of banjo playing including old time, clawhammer, frailing styles or bluegrass.
