Ome Flora curly maple, excellent condition. There is nothing to mention as far as defects with this instrument, aside from the minor scuffing you would expect from a 7-year-old instrument. The instrument is 'maxed-out' with all possible options from the Ome factory. I just have too many banjos and am thinning the herd.

From Ome website:
The FLORA utilizes the OME 5/16” rolled brass tone-ring fitted to our 9/16” 2-ply solid maple rim to increase tonal response and brilliance. Gracefully designed abalone and MOP shell inlays, Mahogany, Walnut or Curly maple tone-woods, and OME Aged Brass hardware are standard. Available in 5-string 11” and 12” open-back models.

Price includes a really nice custom Ome archtop hard case, nice genuine leather strap, bridge upgrade, custom matching Ome armrest, and optional hand-stained and satin finished Maple. Wonderful rich, plunky tone, typical of a 12" Ome. Has been set up by Ome fairly recently. I believe this video captures the tone of the banjo quite well:
