Baycu Piccolo Banjo S/N 1601

From an original 1920's Pacheco Platophone Banjo Ukulele that had a cheese grater under the head, which completely muffled the sound. Sounds better without the cheese grater. Fortunately, Joseph Pacheco had Vega make the rest of the rim and all the hardware so this is essentially a Vega Little Wonder tone ring in an extremely rare seven inch size!

Inlays are based on S.S. Stewarts "OWN Little Wonder" Piccolo Banjo in a very rare Style 2 pattern.

Curly maple neck, heavy ebony fingerboard, gold mother of pearl.
