Description

Deering Vega Little Wonder Specification:
The new Vega banjos are the culmination of years of evolution and development, producing powerful, folk and early style banjos that are as much at home in today’s music as they were in years past. The sounds of these banjos are ideal for old time music, fingerstyle, clawhammer, folk, classical, ragtime, and for classic turn of the century parlor music.

Vega banjos are also a perfect choice for any player who wants a powerful, versatile banjo that is not too heavy. (Try these with a few bluegrass licks and you’ll see what we mean by versatile.) Surpassing early Vega banjos in quality, parts, and craftsmanship, the new Vega banjos by Deering blend the best of today’s technology with yesterday’s classic tones.

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 solid violin 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 solid 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.
