New / 1 5/16″ width at nut
Serial number #063 / EVO Frets
This new ODE 11″ Cherry banjo was designed by Chuck Ogsbury and built by his son Zen. Similar peghead design to banjos from the 1800’s. Blackened peghead veneer has 1937 Indianhead Nickel inlaid. Wooden truss rod cover above bone nut. Small pearl dot inlays on flat Ebony fingerboard, with white side dots for position markers. Ebony heelcap. Fingerboard shows a squared-off scallop after 17th fret, for ease of frailing. 24-bracket construction. Handmade wooden armrest.
The Cherry wood neck has lots of character of both grain and chatoyance. Maple rim is specially designed by ODE, with tortoise binding.
Railroad spikes installed at A, B position (7th and 9th frets).
All antiqu’ed hardware except H&K nickel tuners with matching amber buttons.
Fresh professional setup, with Renaissance head. These banjos come straight from ODE setup and ready to play. We can barely keep them in stock, they sound and play so good.
Comes w/gig bag (hard case available)
