Regular price $3,319 (SOLD)

OME Oracle 12" open back banjo with cherry neck and rim, radiused ebony fingerboard, frailing scoop, and optional wooden armrest.

The 12" rim paired with OME's old-time rolled brass tone ring offers a tone that is warm and woody while still providing plenty of clarity and projection.

Striking fingerboard and headstock inlays are prime examples of OME's meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail. 

Weighs 6.8 lbs.

Note: The 12" version of the Oracle does not fit in a standard hard case due to the large headstock. This model comes with a heavy-duty gig bag and is $150 less than the 11" Oracle.
