2006 Ome Golden Phoenix 5 String Used

Photo for Ad 176163


Thanks to Ome's long history building deluxe tenor and plectrum models, this open-back model has a tone ring and shell you don't see very often as it's essentially Bacon & Day Silverbell construction. The tall spun tone ring is lighter in weight and delivers a nice refined tone but with plenty of volume. The neck inlay is delightful and different, as you expect from Ome. A beautiful banjo that both sounds and looks different from others in the now rather crowded open-back field.

Acoustic guitars, mandolins, and banjos are still the mainstays at Gryphon, as they have been for over 45 years, though our inventory of steel guitars and ukuleles continues to grow as well. In recent years an important part of our growth has been in instruments by very small companies and individual makers, as we continue to keep one foot, or at least several toes, outside the mainstream music industry.
