Ome Omega 11” w/ Carson Engraved Inlays (USED, 2016)

Sold

Description

It's easy to see why this stunning Omega, from renowned banjo builder OME, was originally featured at the NAMM trade show in 2016. It is drop dead gorgeous and a show-stopper in every way! Since 2016 we've received only one or two other Ome Omegas, which makes a used one quite a rarity. It remains in excellent condition and bears only the faintest traces of prior ownership.

This instrument features hand engraved mother-of-pearl & abalone inlays, by Glenn Carson, and a tone that's simply got it all: warmth, clarity, projection and balance. Glenn is one of the most in-demand engravers and even a cursory glance at this banjo will show you exactly why. Sonically speaking it's bright without being harsh, and round without being overly mellow. Playability is sublime, with a low profile neck featuring a smooth-feeling satin finish.

Ome is among the best banjo builders currently at work and this heirloom quality instrument aptly demonstrates the full range of their talent.
