Ome Minstrel 5-String Open Back Banjo, Maple Neck, Armrest New
We ordered this OME Minstrel with a curly maple neck and a wooden armrest. It has the early scroll headstock and a frailing scoop. The wooden armrest is a comfy alternative to the typical cold metal armrest (OK, maybe not cold in the summer). Nice faux tortoiseshell celluloid binding on the inner and outer back edges of the shell, too. These are the special touches that make a relatively simple banjo design like this look fully finished. OME sends these out with 5th string spikes at the 7th and 9th frets, another nice little extra. Includes a hardshell case.
