It was last week, Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, and Christmas and my birthday came early!--- I picked up my new 1962 VegaVox IV plectrum at Bernunzio's Uptown Music in Rochester NY.
At my wife's suggestion, the new acquisition will be called "The Loud Goddess" in order to distinguish her from my summer purchase, "The Golden Goddess", a 1929 B & D Sultana III.
On the truss rod cover, the original owners name has been engraved: Al Lucas. Any information anyone has about Mr. Lucas would be gratefully appreciated!
This banjo has a slightly longer scale than I'm accustomed to, but it feels nice to play and has a great low action and, and I especially appreciate the longer scale when I'm playing up in the highest register.
