  • This custom Ome Millenium 12" openback banjo was built especially for Elderly instruments' 50th Anniversary. Ome's custom work is remarkable. The excellent design, fit and finish is enhanced by the expertise of renowned craftsmen, making each banjo truly unique. The Celestial fingerboard inlays were hand-engraved by Ron Chacey. The peghead back and heel were handcarved by Kent Bailey. A simple rolled brass hoop provides great old-time tone.
