Alongside the Tupelo, the OME "Minstrel" represents one of the Colorado builder's more austere offerings (the old-timey scrolled headstock is a beautiful touch -- and if you like to turn all your pegs the same way provides some functional advantage too). Features include 2-ply Maple OME tone rim, wood rim-rod, and a reduced bracket count to create OME's “woodiest” banjo tone. Priced with hardshell case!
