OME Juniper 12" open back

OME Juniper R 5-0B Old Time
serial number 5153
manufactured 2007

This a beautifully-crafted wonderful-sounding banjo, which has sat in its case most of its life. This banjo, owned by a fellow who upped and died, was seldom played. I play fretless so never play it.
This is apparent by the lack of wear. There is some time-related fading of the fingerboard -no extra charge for this patina.
There are no dings or scratches.
I haven't changed the not-too-old Black Diamond coated black strings, since I have no idea what the buyer might prefer.
