A friend I jam with at my weekly jam session at the Australian Bakery in Marietta, is having me convert a 20's era Vega Little Wonder into a 5 string. The original neck is nicely carved, however it has been somewhat abused by a previous owner who tried to convert it into a 5 string by putting in a 5th string peg and putting on an over sized fingerboard. The owner of this banjo bought a Gold Tone 5 string neck and just wants me to install it.
The Headstock has been a little mangled too, it has had several holes drilled in it and the inlay is missing.
Here is the new neck he wants to put on.
I'll post more as I work on this.
