condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Ome
model name / number: Double X
Bought new in 1973, this Ome 5 string banjo (#448) looks and sounds great. It has an eight ply maple rim with a spun brass and steel tone ring for a bright and clear sound. The neck is solid Peruvian Mahogany with a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard with Maple underlay. The Mahogany resonator is bound in ivoroid and has two Maple and Rosewood purfling rings.
There are a few superficial scratches and dings, but for an instrument of this vintage it's in excellent shape. Upgrades include an adjustable tailpiece, geared 5th peg, and railroad spike at the 7th fret. Includes original HSC.
