The OME Omega features hand engraved mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays by Glenn Carson, and a tone that simply has 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.
Production of the Omega model is extremely limited (we've only seen two or three in the last five years); and this pre-owned example is in excellent condition. Only the faintest signs of handling distinguish its hardware from showroom-new, and its surfaces and frets are blemish-free. Price includes hardshell case.
