Excellent condition. Pickers looking for quality banjos will know of the OME name and reputation as a builder of outstanding banjos with a beautiful tone, and appearance.

Featuring a pure sound with excellent clarity across the tonal range, this vintage OMEXXX has a player-friendly hand-shaped neck made of South American Mahogany. African ebony fingerboard has mother-of-pearl inlay. African Ebony is used for heel cap and peghead which has best quality tuning pegs. Two-piece flange is heavily nickel-plated and in excellent condition for its age with typical OME 'tadpole' cut-outs. The Mahogany resonator is unmarked and has two purfling rings inlaid. Ivoroid binding on resonator and fingerboard. Signed OME tailpiece and armrest. (Armrest is corroded.) Kat Eyes bridge. Professionally set up and fitted with capo spikes at 7th, 9th and 10th frets.

A caring owner could have the armrest replated to restore the good looks of this fine instrument which can be considered an excellent banjo to play now and as an investment for the future. They don't make these anymore!

In rare condition - this banjo has no fret wear, and no gouge marks in the fingerboard! Burgundy plush-lined original TKL case, itself in excellent condition. We have seen other pre-loved XXX banjos for sale in USA recently for $4840 landed to Australia. (see link below) Great instrument, great buy price.
