1941 Vega L-100 Mandolin

Photo for Ad 145445

The Vega Company was established in 1903 after years of making banjos under the name A.C. Fairbanks. Once established under the name Vega, they expanded their line to include guitars and mandolins, which continued through the 1950s. The L-100 was one of the last models to be produced, featuring a carved spruce top and carved mahogany back & sides with a double cutaway design, finished in a classic sunburst.


These later Vega mandolins possess a bell-like tone, thick and lush with much sustain. Combining the sloping body design with a player-friendly neck contour provides easy access to notes in the higher registers. This seldom seen vintage mandolin is an affordable choice for players at all levels. 

$795.00 with original hard case
