Condition Report: This VIP Vega 5 string banjo is truly one of a kind. It was made by a single craftsman in 1968. It is the only Vega VIP banjo ever made from “Tiger maple wood. Even though it is 48 years old, it has never had any structural or cosmetic work done to it. It is truly showroom perfect. If you will, please read the following letter which you will see was written in 1980. When our consignor bought it, it had never been formerly played. It now has been played only by the consignor, infrequently for about 3 years. Other than that it has been in an enclosed display case. We apologize for the visual quality of the letter, but do realize that it is now 48 years old.
