Ode banjos are a relatively new line from the good people at Ome Banjo Co. in Boulder, Colorado - an intermediate open-back that prices in between the company's excellent Ute line and the name-brand Omes that have made them a first-class name in banjo luthiery. As compared to the Utes, Odes feature upgraded cosmetics, a mahogany armrest, and more brackets than your standard Ute, but what makes this Limited Edition special is the Brazilian rosewood fretboard and headstock overlay (yes, you read that right). Like Utes, the Odes come with aged brass brackets, a Renaissance head, and a solid mahogany neck for the warm and thumpy sound that clawhammer players have come to love. Included in the price is an Ome gig bag.
