The JUBILEE features our standard 26.25” scale, 1.28” nut width, and our 17 fret S-scoped fingerboard. The 2-ply solid maple rim is 9/16” thick and is capped with black ebonite and bound with simulated tortoise shell. Both the 11”/24 bracket and the 12”/26 bracket Jubilee utilise the OME maple Tone Rim construction with two adjustable brass rim rods. This produces a somewhat “Brighter” tone and response than the shorter 25.5” scale used on our “Old-Time” Series banjos, but it is still the “Woodiest” sounding Vintage Series banjo we make. The JUBILEE is available with Aged Brass or Nickel hardware and is made with the same care and precision as other OME instruments. It comes complete with our Deluxe hard-shell case.
