1991 Ome Custom Plectrum
Chuck Ogsbury started making banjos under the Ode brand in Colorado during the folk era. After selling Ode and taking a break form instrument building, returned with the OME brand, offering old-time and jazz banjos as well as bluegrass instruments.
This custom Grand Artist Classic plectrum model was made in 1991, but it is elaborate as any of the highly ornamented banjos from the Jazz Age. It features beautifully figured curly maple, abalone trim on the sides of the neck, rim and edge of the resonator, elaborate carving on resonator, neck and wood rim, engraved gold-plated hardware and intricately engraved inlay. The ornamental work was doen by Ron Chacey for Ome.
This one-of-a-kind custom instrument is in Mint conditon with papers. With orignal hard case it is offered at $6,500.
