Baum® Launches VEGA™.
(Aarhus, Denmark) September 29, 2022. Baum has announced the release of their new VEGA series. A new line of guitars that focuses on the essentials in the Danish Baum design starting at just €699 ex vat.
The new VEGA series features the Wingman™ and Carve™ designs by Baum. The Wingman is the iconic statement of standing out in the crowd. The Carve is the classic double-cut. Both are so new, yet so familiar. And both designs, previously coming from the Custom Collection crafted in Denmark, are making their way into the manufactured series like The Original Series, and now VEGA too.
“We are really excited to finally announce the new VEGA Series. These new models bring another perspective of what Danish design can do to an instrument. With VEGA, we keep it simple but full of character. We keep it simple but never compromised. They’re 100% Baum instruments with the same vibe, feeling, and sound that you know. Just less bells and whistles. ”
Morten Bau, Founder & Chief Designer
New for the VEGA series is the design identity which is centered around simplicity. Not to make them less, but to focus on what gives an instrument the true Baum character without all the cosmetic bells and whistles. VEGA is mega.
Simplicity is key. The character is Baum. And the new VEGA models all feature the classic Baum elements, of course:
- Designed by Baum®
- Levitator™ Roller-Bridge
- Goldsound® Essence P90
- Baum Classic C Neck profile.
The Wingman features a bayur body – a locally sourced wood with similar structure and properties as mahogany. And the same sound qualities like tone and sustain as well. The Wingman neck is a modernly profiled C-shaped maple with a 12” pau-ferro fretboard and medium jumbo frets. The look is kept simple with dot inlays and no bindings. The Wingman features the new Wave™ headstock. The instrument’s voice comes from the proprietary pair of Goldsound® Essence P90s and Levitator™ roller-bridge. The VEGA Wingman edition features a stop-tail design.

The Carve features a bayur body – a locally sourced wood with similar structure and properties as mahogany. And the same sound qualities like tone and sustain as well.
