An intermediate model from Ozark - specially designed for the bluegrass beginner or improver who needs the flexibility of a convertible resonator banjo.It's a modified & upgraded version of the standard Ozark 2112G
It has an 11" x ¾" thick laminated mahogany rim with a rolled brass tone ring & heavy duty chrome plated metalwork - notched tension ring, 24 brackets and a cast "New Kerschner" tailpiece. The thick rim and re-inforced neck to rim joint make for an extremely stable banjo. The standard of plating is good. Fitted with a top sprayed Remo head. The truss rodded mahogany neck is quite slim with a cream bound rosewood fingerboard and diamond position markers. The scale length is 26 ½" with 22 frets. Modern banjo fretting, nicely done and hand-dressed to give an excellent playing surface. The action is set-up low with a standard 5/8" bridge but is adjustable as required. Fitted with good quality planetary banjo tuners and a matching geared 5th string peg. The resonator is a standard convex type which is attached with 4 thumbscrews so that it is easily removed/replaced; the banjo is perfectly playable either way. The neck is finished in clear dark gloss lacquer which matches the body & resonator very well - the finish is good.
FREE with this banjo: 2 sets of top-quality spare strings, a capo (for the 4 long strings) & a pair of fitted capo spikes (for the 5th string) and a fitted banjo strap with a thick shoulder pad.
