The Tupelo is OME’s most basic Old-Time model. It features a shorter 25.5” scale, wider 1.34” nut width, and a fretless S-scoop fingerboard. The 2-ply solid cherry rim is 9/16” thick and is capped with black Ebonite and bound with simulated Tortoise shell.
We inspect each and every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
