A very nice example of a Fairbanks by the Vega Co.
4-String Melody Banjo, meant to be tuned like a mandolin.
Oddly, it has a 14" scale length which might suggest a Banjo-Ukulele, and in fact is presently strung with Aquila ukulele strings.
10 1/8" rim. A barely functional case is provided with it.
Old No-Knot tailpiece and period Planet geared pegs.
