A modified & improved version of this well-known Semi pro model from Ozark. It has an 11” x ¾” thick 3-ply maple rim with a cast brass Flathead tone ring & heavy-duty chrome-plated metalwork - 24 brackets and a Kershner tailpiece. The plating is very nicely done. Fitted with a Remo head. The truss rodded maple neck is quite chunky with a bound rosewood fingerboard and fancy “wreath-style” inlaid position markers. The scale length is 26 ¼” with 22 frets. Modern banjo fretting, nicely done and hand-dressed by us to give an excellent playing surface. The action is set-up low but is adjustable as required. Fitted with good quality vintage style planetary banjo tuners and a matching geared 5th peg. The neck is finished in gloss lacquer which matches the resonator & body very well - the finish is very good. The resonator is the standard convex type and the flange is the one-piece cast zinc-alloy type regarded as the standard for modern bluegrass banjos.
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. Overall, this banjo is well built and good value for money. It has a bright, loud tone suitable for any open chord tuning.
A good “bluegrass” banjo which would suit a intermediate player or semi pro.
