SOLD – (NEW) OME Flora 11″ Open-Back 5-String Banjo, Curly Maple with Aged Metal Hardware, #6666 – SOLD

(NEW) Our best selling open back banjos are handcrafted in Boulder, CO by the good folks at OME. We’ve had a hard time keeping them in stock, as the Wizards and Floras and Jubilees just seem to fly out of here. Continuing our obsession with these relatively new OME open back designs, we turned up the heat on this one and ordered the FLORA model (brass tube tone ring) in CURLY MAPLE with tung oil finish and wooden armrest.


The FLORA utilizes the OME 5/16” rolled brass tone-ring fitted to a 9/16” 2-ply solid maple rim to increase tonal response and brilliance. Gracefully designed abalone and MOP shell inlays, Curly maple tone-woods, and OME Aged Brass hardware are standard.
