Exc+ condition • SN# 0529
This 2004 Prucha Fall in Love model is a beauty. Great condition all around. The Honey-amber finish color really accentuates the strength of the Maple figure.
The Ebony peghead veneer has JPrucha logo inlaid at top and abalone floral pattern in center. Truss rod cover is situated above the nut. Bone nut. Gabon Ebony flat fingerboard with “Fall-in-Love” abalone inlay pattern. Abalone inlay at 19th fret has “Fall in Love” engraved into it. Tuners are Nickel Gotoh main tuners, with Nickel Schaller 5th – all with matching ivoroid buttons.
Bindings are “reversed”, with Black outer bindings with multiple accent lines seen on both quadrants, on face of fingerboard and along side of neck. Likewise, the resonator has same reversed bindings and same extra accent lines of purflings seen on top and back edges of resonator and on upper and lower sidewalls of resonator.
The Nickel hardware is in great shape and appears to have hardly been touched. Similarly, the head and bridge look almost new. The only thing we’ve had to do to get it in peak playing condition is just to perform a light fret milling.
This is a great time capsule banjo. Looks almost like new even at 16-17 years old. Wonderful tone and playability. Comes with a very good hard case.
