OME Banjos - Custom Celtic Quest 11" Open-Back

$2,500.00

SOLD. Call us for options.

This used OME Celtic Quest 11 Inch Open Back Banjo is an absolute beauty, and a piece of history - it was the very first Celtic Quest, aka the Celtic Cross - what is today the Ome Trilogy. This is in Near Mint condition, too. Featuring an extra fancy Flame Maple body and neck with a stainless steel tension hoop, it plays and sounds wonderfully - an incredibly crisp and clear tone, while retaining real warmth. The Ebony fingerboard doesn't feel played at all - even our luthiers didn't believe it was used - and the 1 1/8" nut width, standard 26 1/4" scale length, and Snuffy Smith bridge all add to its superior playability.

This is a nice opportunity to get an amazing banjo that has since been discontinued and is practically unplayed. This OME Celtic Quest 11 Inch Open Back Banjo is loaded with elegant appointments and quality materials, including an engraved armrest. This is an all-around expertly made instrument and a very cool banjo. Includes hardshell case too.
