This is a very clean 1964 ODE Model 33F Longneck, Grade 2, or "Style 2" in the '64 catalog, banjo, a resonator 5 string longneck that sounds like loud and clear. The "Style 2" in the catalog means that is has a nickel plated brass half ring mounted on the 33 "F", for flathead, cast aircraft grade aluminum pot. It sounds somewhere between a Silver Spun and a Tubaphone tone ring. It sounds perfect all the way up the neck. The neck is flamed maple with rosewood stripes and an ebony heal cap. The resonator and flange plates can be easily removed to play this as an open back. It sounds terrific either way, and this is no exaggeration. The banjo is entirely original and looks two weeks old. It even has the ODE bridge and head. The Grover tuners are in perfect shape. The original Lifton case is in perfect shape and even still has a key. It's big, so shipping will be fair, but cover the cost. You'll not be disappointed in this fine instrument from one of the best luthiers in the history of the banjo. ODE is now OME of course, and there is plenty of great information on the internet. It's a 32 1/4" scale. The catalog pic is for reference only, it belongs to a pal. Thanks! If you have any questions, reach out.
