Owning a Vega Little Wonder makes you a member of a select group of banjo enthusiasts who appreciate the deep historical sense of banjo and desire the warm, bright tone of maple crafted with a classical American aesthetic. Bearing the same peghead profile and neck shape of this vintage line along with the practical application of modern techniques to adjust the banjo through the truss rod in the neck, adjustable Deering True Tone tailpiece, and coordinator rod in the 3-ply violin grade maple rim, this Vega banjo is ideal for the player who needs a lighter weight instrument.

The one piece neck has an ebony fingerboard with an engraved white star and Vega name on the traditionally shaped Vega peghead. With Deering planetary tuners, a flat armrest for comfort, and a 24-bracket rim for a fully adjustable head tension, this Vega Little Wonder a delight to see and play.
