About this Banjo
Light weight and tuned like a guitar, for blues, rock, jazz, or any style you want to play, the Vega 6-string is a great sounding light weight openback banjo. It that plays beautifully and gives a rich warm banjo sound reminiscent of the 6-string banjos of the early 1900’s but with a much better intonation and improved tone. It has clear and elegant banjo tone with bass notes that are full and round. It’s a pure delight for the guitarist as an easy instrument that is similar in weight to a guitar, fingered the same as a guitar and is compatible as a second instrument for those special songs that come alive with the smile and sparkle of a banjo tone.
This open back Vega Senator 6-string banjo has the ease of playability that all Deering banjos are noted for, and the light weight desired by many banjo players without sacrificing sound quality and sustain.

I would recommend them to anyone and everyone
Fantastic banjos sold by fantastic people. I have bought two banjos from Banjo.com and about to buy my third from them. These guys are just great people to go business with; knowledge, banjo players themselves, and just super nice. I do business with them because they are not just looking to sell my any banjo. They provide great input based upon what I want and need; not just what cost the most. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone interested in getting a banjo.
Highly recommend them to others
Barry at Banjo.com helped me make a great choice on purchasing a new banjo. He answered my emails and phone calls promptly. After a few conversations I went with his newly designed Bish Line Coal Dust. I ordered it and he kept me updated on its progress. It arrived in perfect condition and it's even nicer than he described. I will keep Banjo.com at the top of my list for any future purchases and would highly recommend them to others. Thank you again to Barry and his staff.
I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service
I recently purchased a Deering Sierra mahogany open back banjo from Banjo.com. Since I live in north Georgia, only two and one-half hours from the home of Banjo.com, I was able to visit the Banjo Barn where Barry give me the opportunity to "test drive" several banjos and he assisted me in narrowing down to my final choice. I must say, I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service I received from Barry and Banjo.com. Thank you!
