New OME Minstrel 12" Banjo

Photo for Ad 117125



Serial number: 6773. Scale length: 25.5". Width at nut: 1 5/16".
"Woody" tone ring. Mahogany neck with maple rim. All antiqu’ed hardware. 14 hooks and nuts. Dowel stick construction. Scroll peghead. Ebony flat fingerboard with scalloped extension. Fingerboard has maple woodstrip. Ebony peghead overlay and heelcap. Maple rim is beautifully dressed at bottom with tortoise celluloid inside and out. Irridescent amber tuner buttons. Renaissance head.

Lovely authentic Old Time sound. As soon as you hear the wooden tone ring, you know right away you don’t need a Tubaphone or Whyte Laydie tone ring to make great sound. This is a beautiful constructed banjo with all wood parts still hand-milled by Chuck Ogsbury, the original founder of ODE and OME in Boulder, Colorado. A fine banjo made in America. Many of the brass parts are created in the OME facility and all antiqu’ing is done by hand by Tanya Ogsbury, the manager of OME.
