OME ODYSSEY - GOLD PLATED, HAND ENGRAVED - Pre-Loved - 2009 - Withdrawn

OME are known for making some of the best built and best finished banjos in the USA. Their banjos are also some of the most beautiful. This one is particularly stunning.

Premium highly flamed maple neck, rim and resonator woods. Shaded burnt sienna polished lacquer finish. Premium African ebony fingerboard with Odyssey inlays. Ivoroid bound Ome Odyssey peghead. The "double-cut" headstock peghead features full binding and the distinctive Odyssey torch inlay.

Gold plated 4:1 sealed planetary geared tuners. Gold plated, hand engraved OME "Harp" tailpiece and armrest. The 3-ply maple pot has a Megatone tone ring, and produces about the best sounding bluegrass banjo noises I've ever heard. NO fretwear.

Don't take my word for it; have a look at what other folks are saying:
from 'FORREST'

"I find the Odyssey to be a surprisingly versatile banjo... It has a very quick response and good note separation, plus excellent tone. The tone is unique to my ears; very musical and lively sounding. I find that the sound lends itself to a variety of styles, from bluegrass to melodic to classical."
"...completeness of sound and note separation rule. The volume is also excellent and the tone is very even up and down the neck."

In immaculate condition and presented in Prucha-made white flight case. On Consignment $5700 AUD - Withdrawn
