Beautiful example of the fine expert craftsmanship of Douglas Unger; this banjo features a 10-15/16" rim with 27" scale neck, a rare occurrence in Professor Unger's banjos. The maple rim assembly is an original Vega, and features all original hardware; reproduction No Knot tailpiece and wire armrest. The 27" scale neck was made from highly flamed maple and has the exact feel and look of an original; long/detailed heel carving; Professor Unger is known for his highly ornate engraved pearl work, and this banjo is no exception; engraved pearl present on the heel cap, fretboard, and on the peghead overlay is perhaps the finest flower pot we have seen; scalloped bone nut. In remarkably good condition apart from some minor surface scratching on the reverse of the neck.
