ca. 1922 Vega Tu-Ba-Phone Pot with Wyatt Fawley Repro. Neck

2000 Ramsey Woody Student This is a classic 11-13/16-inch Tu-Ba-Phone pot for which Wyatt Fawley, one of the very best makers of reproduction necks, has worked his magic.

With a simple star-and-dots inlay and a mahogany neck (like the original TBPs), this is a handsome, sweet-playing banjo. This highly sought after combination of vintage pot with a masterfully built neck is in really good shape, having no bad gouges or scratches, and only minimal fret wear.

It's consigned here for $2250. We'd be happy to provide a case or gig bag, of course.
