New Prucha Spirit - Jason Burleson Signature Top Tension Banjo

In Stock

     New. Lightweight top tension model---newest design by Jaroslav Prucha.
     This banjo is fresh from a stellar performance used by Jason Burleson at the SPBGMA Saturday night show in Nashville. Mr. Burleson brought the house down with this banjo sounding so fine there were many comments about it to Prucha and Jason Burleson. Jaroslav Prucha then revealed that it does not have the usual heavy flathead tonering, but rather a newly designed bar tone ring that transmits tone beautifully to the rim so that the audience cannot tell that it is not a full flathead tonering. Other innovations on this banjo include new pot metal top tension hoop by Prucha and his famous one-piece pot metal flange.The resonator is a normal ply resonator instead of the solid back wall usually used in top tension banjos.
     Very high grade figured maple neck and resonator. Multiple ivoroid bindings around top and back edge of resonator and along fingerboard. Resonator shows the black line along top, back, and sides. Handsome root beer brown finish. Beautiful abalone Spirit inlays in peghead and fingerboard. Fingerboard is radiused ebony. Neck has 24-frets with last two extended over the head. Beautiful pre-War style H&K tuners with Gotoh 5th, all with matching ivoroid buttons. Jason Burleson signature block at 19th fret and etched into truss rod cover. Railroad spikes installed at A, Bb, B, and C positions. 4-hump clamshell tailpiece. and classic top tension armrest.
     Comes with all the tone you need. Jason Burleson made this banjo sound like a million dollars closing the SPBGMA awards show on the main stage in 2017.
