We think this 2009 Prucha F-5 mandolin should be classed as an F-5 Premium model due to all of its premium upgrades: It has a highly figured Maple back, sides and neck, German Spruce top, Gold hardware (including Gotoh tuners with ivoroid buttons and 2-pc gold tailpiece with engraved cover). Great feeling radiused Gabon Ebony fingerboard, with double-cut f.b. extension and scalloped f.b. extension. Fully bound body and neck. Abalone Fern headstock inlay and abalone dots in f.b. JPrucha logo abalone inlay at top of peghead and abalone truss-rod cover near nut. Traditional tobacco sunburst. Glossy lacquer finish.
What a fine mandolin! There are almost no signs of being played. It is quite evident that the previous owner took great care when playing it. Call for an accurate description of the one or two small dings. These Prucha mandolins are revered by their owners and are well-known as masterfully built instruments, with professional sound, expressive soul and great playability.
Comes with great set-up, great tone and almost new condition. The original case is a rectangular TKL hard case.
