For sale- 1920's Vega Style F tenor banjo, currently strung as a baritone banjo uke. I am only selling because I really only play banjos I build nowadays. This is the banjo you have seen on many of my youtube videos and concerts. New fiberskyn head, geared banjo tuners and an old hard shell case. Has some minor cosmetic wear and a piece of the fretboard replaced. A nice mellow sound because of the nylon strings and the wooden rim. $500 or best offer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUZNw2dJKuU8805888059880608806188062

It's a 10 3/4 inch rim and a 19 3/4 scale length. It should take any sort of baritone uke strings. I also have had light steel strings on it and it sounds good tuned dgbe.
