Ome Tupelo 11" Open Back Mahogany / Maple Banjo S#6499

The OME TUPELO is our most basic Old-Time model. It features our shorter 25.5” scale, wider 1.34” 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. The OME 11” and 12” maple Tone Rim construction combined with less brackets and wood rim-rod produce our “woodiest” Old-time banjo tone. The TUPELO is made with the same care and precision as other OME instruments and comes complete with our Deluxe hard-shell case.
