Mark at the Maryland Banjo Academy 1998 playing a 1930 Vega Vegaphone No. 9 with a Dogwood Designs Vega design strap in natural finish.
At IBMA 1999 with his gorgeous Chubby Dragon Vega with a matching Dogwood Designs strap finished in cordovan with the Chubby Dragon tooled into it. The strap is lined with genuine elk skin. This strap was stolen backstage at a concert, so if anyone sees it, it ain't the persons that is using it!
