Prucha For Sale
 Stock #3
1930's KK-10.  This is a fixer-upper, in fact a perfect base for a pre-war conversion to a 5-string bluegrass banjo.  For those of you who crave the MOTS look, this would be a very inexpensive starter for a conversion.  The resonator is sound but has a few separations (see photos).  If you want these closed up, I can do that with hide glue for an extra charge.  There is a hairline crack in one of the sound holes of the original pre-war flange (pictured), which is absolutely non-structural.  It has a flat hoop/hook design, which is quite functional but which you will probably want to replace with a notched version at some point.  No tailpiece. 
$2,000 or Best Offer.

Stock #1
1999 Prucha Fall-in-Love Custom Gold This was purchased from Jaroslav Prucha through Greg Boyd (check out Greg's site and information on Prucha banjos here: More Info, or Prucha himself at Prucha Website
This was an "over-the-top" creation, with book-matched solid 100-year-old flamed European Maple resonator (carved inside by hand by Prucha and "tuned" like the old violins), gold-plated throughout, and the ultimate appointments in abalone inlays and binding on a radiused fingerboard.  It doesn't get any better than this... the last banjo anything like this was listed on Boyd's site with a 5-digit selling price.... You will note that all of the Prucha's are "pre-sold", so you won't see many banjos of this level come along in the future.  Reduced to $4,500 or best offer.
