Vega's top-of-the line just before the famous "Vox" models were introduced, the "Deluxe" featured the full Tubaphone #9 appointments and added gold plated engraved metal work, along with the engraved pyralin decoration on the resonator. Inside, where you can't see it, there's an abalone cap at the back edge of the shell.
