New 1695 plus tax at Long Mcquade This is a 2002 model No issues.excel condition.
For Clawhammer or Frailing banjoists who prefer a scooped neck to ease plucking their banjos over the fingerboard, Deering makes the Vega Old Tyme Wonder. They build in a traditional "scoop? that allows more room for the fingers and thumb of the right hand to pluck the strings over the fingerboard. They steam and bend a violin grade maple rim and install a fiberskyn head over the rim, attaching a classic "no knot tailpiece? for a traditional old time sound. This is a light weight banjo that is made especially for musicians who want the warmer tones that go well in a string band with a fiddle and bass.

It is the mellowest banjo sound, a lovely full tone. The Old Tyme Wonder is reliable and exceptional in tone, playability, versatility and responsiveness, with a round woody tone perfect for old time string bands.
