1986 OME Ponderosa Tenor banjo, 4 strings, serial number 3236. The pot and neck are both maple stained a honey-colored amber. Fingerboard and peghead overlay are rosewood with inlays of abalone and MOP. Don't know what OME called the tone ring but it's made of brass and can be seen in the last photo. 11" head, 19 frets and a scale length of 22-1/8". The fingerboard is 1-5/32" wide at the nut. Dual coordinator rods adjust the action, currently set at around 3/32" at the 12th fret. The instrument has an older Remo head and sounds great. There's some weather checking, particularly on the resonator, as well as a few dings and scrapes; the shine is gone on most of the tension hooks. Otherwise it's in pretty good shape with negligible fret wear. For more information take a look at the 1983 OME catalog archived at the "More Info URL" below. Included is what must be the original case, which is quite beat up but still looks pretty good inside. Sorry, US addresses only: I'm not going to ship elsewhere due to the CITES treaty. Thanks for looking.
