New / SN#074
Walnut / Antique’d Hardware
11″ Pot / 26.5″ Scale Length
New ODE 11″ Walnut Limited #077 – a beautiful, handcrafted and excellent sounding instrument. The banjo features a simple paddle peghead with a 1937 Indian Head Nickle inlay. On the back is an “ODE boulder CO” brand and stamped serial number. The H&K nickel tuners have iridescent amber buttons, and all 5 tuners are matching. There is a bone nut.
The flat rosewood fingerboard has pearl dot inlays. The fingerboard on the last 5 frets is beveled to ensure comfortable playing and prevent your fingernail from hitting the corner. The back of the neck is made of beautiful and interesting grained walnut, and includes an ebony heel cap.
The 5/16th multilaminate pot is dressed out with tortoise binding at the outer bottom. There are 24 hooks and nuts. All hardware: nuts shoes, tension hoop, and No Knot tailpiece are antiqued, giving the instrument a vintage feel. The banjo also comes with a Dotson bridge, a wooden handmade armrest, and a single wooden dowel stick.
These are fine banjos, they sound great and are built entirely by hand by the owner and founder of ODE and OME.
The banjo comes with a good gig bag for safe storage and transportation.
