Top of the line banjo from Ome, the highly regarded banjo builders based in Boulder, CO for the past 50 years.
This is a custom gold-plated, hand-engraved banjo made in 2004, which would cost around $6000 to order, plus a wait time of 6+ months. It's in pristine condition, hardly a scratch on it. It's even signed by the makers.
It lacks nothing in volume, and can hold its own in a jam with anyone. But it also responds to a soft touch and can be quiet and remarkably beautiful. Delivers well for bluegrass as well as many other styles (I've played a lot of Irish music on it). Can't really say enough good things about this banjo. The only reason I'm selling it is I now have 2 Ome resonator banjos and I need to downsize.
