ODE by OME 13" Magician Open Back Banjo, Cherry - NEW - SOLD


(NEW) OME Banjos has revived the ODE brand, bringing their decades of banjo building experience to a wallet-friendly price range, built in the USA. This 13" Magician is a prototype model, the first built at this size. Even though the pot is larger than the average open-back, this instrument has superb full, clear, and articulate tone... and it weighs less than 5 1/2 lbs!

The rim is curly maple with satin lacquer and the neck is cherry/ebony with varnish, with nickel and aged brass hardware and ebony fingerboard. 25 1/2" scale with 1 7/16" nut width. Excellent playability with 5/8" bridge. Comes pre-spiked for capo at 7th and 9th frets. Includes a nice Crossrock tweed hard case!  

Serial #043
