This iOTA has beautiful trim wood on peghead, heel and armrest of QUILTED MAPLE. It is matched with a BOCOTE fingerboard. This neck is stained and paired with a BLACK iOTA rim mounted with a ‘Black suede’ Remo head. Gotoh tuners, all five on peghead with tunneled fifth string. Amber button on fifth tuner. Simple eye catching Abalone dot fret markers.

All iOTA banjos come with features that are unique to Vance banjos. Emphasis is on the wood choices and balanced feel of the instrument with great sound and playability. The Vance neck design with the tunneled 5th string being a standard feature along with a wonderful playing setup. The tunnel feature allows for much more mobility in the second playing position where the usual fifth peg is in the way. Very sleek and functional design. The rim is a stiff Birch ply that is finished in black or other colors and machined to function as an integral woody tonering. The result is an open, bright yet woody and earthy tone with plenty of projection and snap. This is a balanced light weight powerful musical instrument made with the player in mind.
Thanks for looking,
