Unusual and custom, possibly one-of-a-kind vintage Vega Fairbanks Whyte Laydie Banjo Mandolin. Credible best offers considered. Highly unusual 9” Pot. All other Vegas B-mandos I’ve seen have 10 plus “ pots. Note the initials engraved on the pearl fingerboard inlay. Matching serial numbers on pot and dowel - 47548, 1922. Original or period hardware (The plating will polish up well), calf skin head, working but not original hard shell case. Great action, tone and volume. Check out Remco Houtman giving it a spin on the video. This instrument took a tumble from a stand here at home on my watch. A bad day indeed. The subsequent heel crack repair is the best I’ve ever seen - nearly invisible. I’ve had it strung at full pitch since the repair for over a year with absolutely no problems or hint of problems to come. One tuner peg is slightly bent but works well like the others. I’m a uke and 5-string banjo player and not a mandolin player or this particular instrument would remain with me. Write me with questions or for additional photos. Insures, USPS Priority Shipping.  Check with me for a shipping price if you’re outside the lower 48 states. Returns honored for any reason with a 3 day review.  Thanks for looking. Corey
