SOLD Excellent Condition Vega Tubaphone Guitar Banjo
Price: $1,800.00 USD
Excellent condition with original case Tubaphone 6 string banjo, serial number 90274, making it a mid 1930's vintage according to Mugwumps. Shell and dowel serial numbers match. 11 7/8" head with intact "Velvet" hide head. Looks vintage but I would have expected a Rogers if original. Case condition very good. There is a small binding separation at inside of shell at neck joint and small crack in heel cap that is stable. See photos for view of the heel end showing crack confined to cap only. My brother owned this banjo and he would have had the heel crack assessed and repaired if necessary. Condition issues are visible in photos. The neck attitude is superb and the action is pristine all over the neck. Bridge height 35/64". This one is clean and original and vintage and complete. If you want a superb vintage Tubaphone like this, think hard. This one is nice. If it does not sell here it will go on eBay but this will be the starting price if it does. The ones I have seen have either been priced over 2K and don't sell, or are priced under 2K and do, but none have the condition this one has.
