Beautiful example of a Vega "Vegaphone" Deluxe model featuring top of the line appointments, in excellent shape; the sound is loud and professional. Rim assembly features all engraved gold parts with an abalone rim cap; includes Vega stamped armrest, Oettinger tailpiece w/ engraved arms; original maple "pie-plate" resonator with engaved grained ivoroid outter wall edge. The neck is curly maple with a detailed heel carving and engraved pearl inlay on the ebony fretboard; good playing straight neck w/ original frets (lightly worn, some pitting); outfitted with original gold plated Planetary tuners. In great shape, we believe that long ago a small hairline crack in the pearwood peghead overlay on the back near lowest tuner caused concern for the original owner, who then had the neck and resonator back refinished, and the engravings re-traced in gold...looks fantastic; gold-plating and engraving on metal parts appear untouched; some typical finish checking and a few dings present on back of resonator. Included in sale is original hard case. Original hard case included in sale.
