About this banjo
The OB-300 is, without reservation, the most beautiful flat head banjo you can buy at anywhere near its price. This gold-plated beauty has every feature you could ask for on a high-end professional banjo. A striking curly maple neck bound with matching curly maple and abalone-style binding catches the eyes; the sand-cast bell bronze flat head tone ring grabs the ears. This tone ring is used only in the world’s finest banjos. A unique abalone-and-pearl-style truss rod cover matches the exquisite inlay found on the neck and the resonator. Unlike most vine-style fret-board inlay patterns, the OB-300’s modified tree of life inlay features flowers as navigational markers at the appropriate fret positions to help you get around. Ingenious. If you want be heard AND noticed, this one’s for you.
