This 2003 Prucha Diamond Point Mahogany is a treat to both your eyes and your ears. It is in very nice condition.
Mahogany neck and resonator. ebony peghead overlay and Ebony radiused fingerboard. Peghead veneer has JPrucha pearl logo inlaid at top and “Diamond Point” inlays in center. Truss rod cover near nut. Bone nut. Radiused Ebony fingerboard has pearl Diamond Point inlay pattern.
This banjo has reversed bindings, meaning that the edge binding is black with white accent lines instead of the opposite. And, on the sides of resonator and sides of fingerboard, there is a colorful wooden marquetry strip against the binding edge. Nickel hardware, including Schaller offset main tuners and Schaller 5th tuner, all with matching pearloid buttons. This is a major signature model from Jaroslav Prucha. It uses his fine 3-ply Maple rim with a Prucha/Ptacek pre-war style Flat Head bell bronze tone ring.
The tone is very good.
There is slight evidence of some fret wear, but not deep. There is some use showing on the head, and there are a few small bumps to resonator side walls that are slight.
This banjo comes with a good hard case.
