Ome Wizard 12" openback banjo with optional maple neck and rim with "Raw Sienna" finish.

The Wizard features a wood tone rim with 26 rim brackets. The result is a lightweight banjo that sounds open and woody while still offering up plenty of volume and projection.

It also features a five-pointed Mother-of-Pearl star inlaid into our Victorian peghead and a 4-pointed star in the fingerboard S-scoop.

Like all OME banjos, the Wizard features amazing craftsmanship and incredible attention to detail. The result is a gorgeous banjo that sounds amazing and is a joy to play.
