The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ OME Jubilee Open Back Banjo Natural, 2014


Instrument Categories: ,

The OME Jubilee banjo comes from Boulder, Colorado, where OME has been building – first under the ODE name – since the early 1960’s. This is one of the best banjos of its type we’ve had here for a while, with excellent build quality, great hardware and a very nice inlay set. On this slightly older model, the neck is Mahogany, while current models come with Cherry, Black Walnut or Maple necks.

This example dates to 2014 and is in very good, clean condition with a Superior hard shell case.

Here’s the builder on the OME Jubilee open-back banjo:

“The OME JUBILEE Old-Time banjo features our graceful 26.25” scaled neck with 12″ Tone Rim construction and two adjustable brass rim rods. Together these attributes allow the JUBILEE to produce a wonderfully sweet tone with cleaner bass and treble and lively response than the shorter 25.5” scaled “Old-Time” Series banjos. The JUBILEE is the “woodiest” sounding banjo in our Vintage Series and comes standard in American Cherry and aged brass hardware with the option to upgrade to Walnut, Curly Maple and nickel.”
