WEIGHT: "ONLY" 6 pounds 15 ounces!!!!! YES, that's correct, according to our hands and our digital scale. Typically professional grade Banjo's max out our scale!
Includes original Deering deluxe hardshell case with 2 case keys & head tension wrench (drum head key). Has fresh strings & setup. Plays great! The body is in great shape, and the neck is easily playable all the way up the fretboard. Just searched the Deering- Vega web site & seems they don't offer this model, nor any 5 string Banjo's with a resonator. They're all now open back, and expensive.....and over a year back ordered! This surprisingly LIGHTWEIGHT Banjo is a professional grade US crafted instrument that's in great condition, and you can enjoy it NOW.
