Thread Name: Deering Goodtime Banjo
Subject: RE: BS: Deering Goodtime Banjo
Fred, A couple of years ago, I tried a Vega tenor in a local music shop and it was easily the worst instrument in the shop which only stocks the cheaper banjos and was one of the worst instruments that I have ever tried. I remember wondering at the time how such a famous old name could be attached to such rubbish.

I can only say that I was pleased to learn that Deering subsequently bought the Vega name.
