2003 Prucha Fall-In-Love Custom Maple

Photo for Ad 121970


Exc cond Prucha with beautiful look and great sound.

Exc(+) condition. SN# 457.

Almost no signs of player wear.

Figured Maple 5-str banjo with lots of mojo.

Reddish amber sunburst color makes the figured Maple come alive.
Ebony peghead veneer with JPrucha logo at top and floral spray inlay in center and around tuning peg posts. Solid pearl truss-rod cover.
Flat Ebony fingerboard with “Falling Leaves” Inlay pattern.

Nickel hardware, including Prucha/Ptacek 20-hole pre-war style Flathead Tone Ring mounted on Prucha’s aged Maple 3-ply rim.

One-pc flange. Presto tailpiece. Schaller 2-band offset tuners, with Schaller 5th tuner.

Multiple Ivoroid/black/white bindings, with wooden marquetry strip under bindings along sides of resonator and sides of fingerboard.

This is a major banjo that you can go ahead and put in the “good” column of rankings. Strong, lovely, nuanced sound… but more importantly, this banjo is one that can be adjusted through a wide range of settings to produce a range of professional sounds.
Comes with a good HC.
