This OME Custom Alpha 12" Open Back Banjo has an old-time feel and appearance coupled with a very lively sound. It has several cool custom features including a Cherry rim and neck, with a Maple dowel rod and aged brass hardware throughout - all of which make for one bright player with subtle warmth and depth. You have a 26 1/4" scale, an Ebony fretboard with a frailing scoop, and a 1 1/8" nut width. The wooden armrest is a perfect addition to its overall classic appearance and makes for a comfortable player.

The details are top notch here too with an Ome bridge and Sweetone tailpiece and a Renaissance head. An incredibly versatile banjo, the OME Custom Alpha 12" Open Back Banjo is particularly great for clawhammer-style playing. Includes hardshell case and setup from our luthiers.
