A dramatic dragon is exquisitely inlaid in mother of pearl and abalone shell in the peghead of the Vega Dragon Star. The many scaled, fire breathing dragon's tail and claws are entwined around a bold Vega star amid vividly engraved in the classical tradition. Made for the dedicated frailing/clawhammer style player, at the base of the scooped ebony fingerboard is a delicate princess colorfully inlaid with hand-engraved detailing and the accented stars that are used as position markers. Bright sterling silver beams of light emanate from the end of her hand-held staff pointing in the direction of the dragon on the peghead of this elaborate banjo.
