60U-3167 - VEGA TUBAPHONE NO. 3 (c.1910) SERIAL#: 26060

Price: $2,500.00 USD

Original 5-string Fairbanks (Vega) Tubaphone no.3 banjos are pretty hard to find.
We are offering here a 1910 A.C. Fairbanks Tubaphone No. 3 with original 5-string neck. 1910 was an early year for the Tubaphone model.

This No. 3 design is particularly nice, with elaborately engraved large flowerpot pearl inlays in the headstock, and engraved inlays in the fingerboard and heel cap. Neck heel is hand carved with floral pattern, which has been repaired some time back but is very solid.

Tuners are old period Grover tuners. Has old geared 5th peg as well. All work perfectly and smooth! This banjo is in great condition, ready to play and has that great Old-Time sound!
Comes with a soft-shell Superior travel case. $2,500
