Vega Floral Banjo
#57  2022

In 1909 Fairbanks (by Vega) made only 5 or 6 banjos with this head inlays which I've always found beautiful. (see So I finally decided to try to make the same head inlays with these intricate engravings. And, in addition, to create inlays for the rest of the banjos that would match the style of the head. Only the back of the head is different in style : I found this nice Gryphon design that would be different of the usual one already seen on some Fairbanks banjos.

11 3/4 Vega Little Wonder rim (the Original was a Tubaphone). Renaissance Head. Steel strings.
