Fairbanks-Vega Tubaphone No. 3

  • Near Mint Condition
  • Year: 1916
  • Includes Original Hard Shell Case
  • Serial #: 34743


Rare original model with Gryphon inlay in the peghead and mahogany neck with carved heel and 27 inch scale. The rim is 10-15/16 inches in diameter with the classic Tubaphone tonering and closed end nuts. This has lived most of its life under the bed and shows little, if any playing time. The old friction tuners were recently replaced with geared tuners but the fifth remains. Set up with a new Remo Renaissance head.
