Used Ome Tupelo with Slotted Peghead 5-String Banjo

This banjo is like new. We shipped it to a customer just a few months ago, but unfortunately the customer is not able to play banjo at this time so they are selling this banjo It is in mint condition. This is a chance to get a great Ome banjo at a used price!
Featuring a cherry neck and rim, this Ome Tupelo has a very authentic old time banjo tone with a very woody tone. It features a shorter 25.5” scale, wider 1.34” nut width, and 17 fret S-scoped fingerboard. The 2-ply solid cherry rim is 9/16” thick and is capped with black ebonite and bound with simulated tortoise shell. The Ome 12” maple Tone Rim construction combined with less brackets and wood rim-rod produce Ome's “woodiest” old time banjo tone. The Tupelo is made with the same care and precision as other Ome instruments and comes complete with their deluxe hardshell case and Limited Lifetime Warranty.
