2010s Bishline Oakie 11" Open-Back Banjo, Mahogany, Dobson Tone Ring - USED - SOLD


(USED) We're big fans of Bishline banjos, and the Oakie is his open back offering.  It's a mahogany instrument with a Dobson tone ring, and we've sold a bunch of them!  We were very happy when this one came back to us.  It has been played a bunch, used but certainly not abused.  There is some wear on the head, some tarnish on the hoop and tone ring, and minimal fret wear.

Long 26 1/4" scale length.  With the Dobson ring, this banjo has a little more "pop" and a little less "cluck", which appeals to players who straddle bluegrass and old time styles. Like all Bishline banjos, it plays like butter, with low action and light strings standard. Regal brass hardware, wooden arm rest, traditional yet minimal inlays and Guardian hard case included.  

Serial #1480
