Vega FR-5 Folk Ranger Openback Banjo c.1960’s


SKU: CON-A-10984 Category: Tag:


Nice banjo! This Folk Ranger from Vega was made in the 1960’s in Boston, Mass. There are 2 small holes drilled where fret markers would go, but in odd places (6th fret and 14h, which wouldn’t have fret markers). The head has been changed sometime in it’s life to a Waverly one.  This banjo plays easily and offers a nice tone.  It is in very good condition and comes with a hard case.
