(USED) Our best selling open back banjos are made by the good folks at OME in Boulder, Colorado.

OME really has a hit on their hands with these new traditional “old timey” instruments – which have quickly become best sellers to the frailing and clawhammer community. This one has tortoise binding, capo spikes at 7 and 9, and aged metal parts. There is some wear on the neck heel from rubbing a banjo strap. There is mild wear on the head from frailing. It’s a nice banjo.
