I know that Eric Prust is no longer making banjos but I also read here (a few years ago) that he might make one once in awhile. Anyone know how to reach him? I was thinking of begging him in case he is at all motivated and/or able to make one. I don't want to bother the man. Anyone have advice, or thoughts?
Thanks!

I have heard he is ill. Not making banjos at all and has moved from his rural place to be closer to medical facilities. This is hearsay, but I think it is not false.

That is sad news. He has made quite a contribution to the banjo world. Thank you for letting me know. From what i have read, he sounds like a very special man. judith

I live about 30 mins from where his shop was. I bought 2 banjos from him and had him turn a big frame drum, a Bendir, into a banjo. He made the neck and it is so deep I can communicate with Submarines. I call it the Peace Maker.  A good guy.
