Prucha Openback Banjo
We have always been a big fan of Mr Prucha’s work, all are made in his workshop just outside Prague. Highly regarded in the USA and having moved back to his homeland to continue his good work.
Whilst his purebred bluegrass resonators command a hefty price tag, not so many are aware that he builds a highly desirable and slightly more affordable openback banjo.
This Prucha Openback Banjo Premium model is certainly not so “old timey”. It is a very modern instrument with brass tone ring, a stunning flamed maple pot and a highly figured hard maple neck.
And the finest of inlay work on neck and peghead. All this from a master craftsman who is gifted in engineering just as much as being a great luthier too.
No out-sourcing here, all made by Jaroslav Prucha & Co., Czech Republic.
