Nice figure in the rosewood fingerboard. Pot and neck are mahogany. Nickel hardware, No-Knot tailpiece, original hardshell Superior case and Prucha bridge. 28 hooks and thick pot make for a very solid banjo ready to take on any jam/gig/session. A nickel armrest came with the banjo and will be in the case. Very minimal fretwear. Serial #: 0839 Prucha 122010

Description from Prucha in the URL below
I paid $1650 4 years ago - go figure. List price on these used to be $2150 if memory serves me correct. I bought it as second owner from Greg Boyd's HOFI in Missoula.
My own tastes have evolved to a beefier neck profile and slightly wider nut; I prefer a frailing scoop. Arthritis in left index now requires a deeper neck profile. I am entering the "de-accumulation phase" of life.
Keep in mind that FedEx/UPS charge exorbitant "dimension weight" shipping rates to private individuals. the last few instruments I've shipped all exceed $100 in continental US. I prefer to ship domestic only.
