OME's Description

The JUBILEE features our standard 26.25” scale, 1.28” nut width, and our 17 fret S-scoped fingerboard.

The 2-ply solid maple rim is 9/16” thick and is capped with black ebonite and bound with simulated tortoise shell.

OME maple Tone Rim construction with two adjustable brass rim rods. This produces a somewhat “Brighter” tone and response than the shorter 25.5” scale used on our “Old-Time” Series banjos, but it is still the “Woodiest” sounding Vintage Series banjo we make.

This JUBILEE is available with nickel hardware and is made with the same care and precision as other OME instruments. It comes complete with our Deluxe hard-shell case and the OME Limited Lifetime Warranty.
