Forever a shop favorite, we're happy to see the rare used Tupelo model banjo by Ome Banjos of Boulder, Colorado; when we custom order banjos from Ome, it can sometimes take near a year for the fine company to hand craft each of their incredible banjos. Not much play time occurred here, but this banjo did collect the signatures of famous banjoists; Riley Baugus, Allison Degroot, Tim Rowell, Cathy Fink, Adam Hurt, Michael Miles, and Bruce Molsky. This example features cherry construction throughough, used in the 12" rim and 25.5" scale neck. The banjo plays without effort, is lighweight and is fully capable dynamically. All wooden rim with beveled edge tonering, equipped with aged brass hardware, Sweetone tailpiece, and exotic wood armrest; ebony rim cap. The neck has an ebony fingerboard, frailing scoop, and has railroad spikes pre-installed on 7/9; ebony heel cap, and rosewood peghead overlay.
