ODE 12" Magician Open-Back Banjo, Maple Tone Rim, Cherry Neck - NEW - SOLD


(NEW) We were more than pleased when OME Banjos of Boulder, CO revived their legendary ODE brand!  These are American-made banjos featuring domestic hardwoods for the necks and rims and genuine ebony for the fingerboards.  The build quality, tone and fit/finish stand up with anything out there, and the price is nice!  Call us if you'd like to discuss an upgrade to a hardshell case.
