Regular price $3,899 (SOLD)

North Star 11" open back banjo featuring an optional flame maple neck/rim with a OME's beautiful "Burnt Sienna" finish.

The North Star comes equipped with OME's Vintage tone ring. In terms of weight, the Vintage ring sits between the lightweight rolled brass ring and the heavy Megatone and Silverspin rings. This gives the North Star's voice a little extra bite without adding too much weight. Learn more about OME's tone rings here.

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

Includes hardshell case.

Weighs 7.1 lbs.
