Fairbanks-Vega Tubaphone (No. 2)

  • Excellent Condition
  • Year: 1912
  • No Case
  • Serial #: 27884


Extremely rare and early 10 3/4 inch Tubaphone rim with reproduction five string neck with carved heel and Gryphon inlay by master banjo luthier John Gough. This is an exceptionally fine instrument is an unusual configuration; Vega did make some Tubaphones with Gryphon inlays but always with a mahogany neck. The maple neck with 26" scale is a delight to play, and features Mr. Gough's high level of historically correct craftsmanship on full display. There is a little bit of fret wear, and light cosmetic wear on the overlay. A gorgeous banjo.
