Ode Style "D" Model 6500 (1978)
This sweet banjo boasts a nice gloss natural finish, walnut neck and double-bound resonator, bound ebony fretboard, motif-pattern fingerboard inlay, 22 fret, 11" head, 1 piece flange, flathead tone ring, engraved filigree tailpiece and armrest, bound headstock with logo and leaf inlays, geared tuners and 5th string peg, gold hardware (some wear), 1-3/16" nut, 27" scale, HSC.
This instrument could use a little TLC, hence the affordable price, but shes in really nice shape overall for an axe that see its share of gigs (see pics).
One things for sure: it sounds much better now than it did 40 years ago! Bonus of assorted vintage picks, etc.
More pictures upon request.
