The OB-300 is, without reservation, the most beautiful flat
head banjo you can buy at anywhere near its price. This gold-plated
beauty has every feature you could ask for on a high-end professional
banjo. A striking curly maple neck bound with matching curly maple and
abalone-style binding catches the eyes; the sand-cast bell bronze flat
head tone ring grabs the ears. This tone ring is used only in the
world's finest banjos. A unique abalone-and-pearl-style truss rod cover
matches the exquisite inlay found on the neck and the resonator. Unlike
most vine-style fret-board inlay patterns, the OB-300's modified tree of
life inlay features flowers as navigational markers at the appropriate
fret positions to help you get around. Ingenious. If you want be heard
AND noticed, this one's for you.
