Here is a true rarity and any Vox player’s dream — a Vega Vox III Deluxe that has been meticulously restored by the legendary Renee Karnes who also added a modern custom “Renee ‘ armrest. The original armrest also comes with the banjo. The distinction ‘Deluxe’ was only added to Vox III banjos that were custom made one-of-a-kind models that cost up to $500 in the early 1930s. This magnificent tenor has a dead-straight neck mint frets and fingerboard and It looks and plays like a new banjo. The quintessential Vox sound it produces with the Tubaphone tone ring is fantastic. SN 96851 is present on both dowel stick and rim. Original near-mint case.
