(NEW) As promised, our latest custom banjo from our good friends at OME in Boulder, Colorado – a professional grade Bluegrass style (Claro Walnut) AGED BRASS plated resonator banjo in high gloss finish with a TONY PASS thin skirt BIRCH rim and OME’s great new HG50 “pre-war” bronze alloy flathead Bluegrass tone ring. Presto tailpiece, double-cut peghead style, Remo head, Sosebee OLD WOOD bluegrass bridge, peghead truss rod access, RR spikes installed at 7 and 9. We really nailed it again with this one. The Tony Pass rim/tone ring combination gets a great old time pre-war tone, but most importantly is the “feel” of this banjo. We asked for and got a radiused Brazilian rosewood fretboard and this banjo plays like heaven! Chords finger like butter all over the neck. Just effortless, fat tone at every fret, and lightning FAST!! The Brazilian Rosewood fretboard, matched with the aged brass parts (and WOODEN armrest!) give it an old-timey vibe visually, but the banjo delivers hard-charging pro-level volume and Fleck-ready playability. Crazy good.
$4,990 includes case. One of the coolest banjos currently in the shop.
