1997 Recording King Flathead by Greg Rich. Extremely
rare. Not to be confused with the modern banjos by the same name,
this was made 100% in the USA after Greg Rich left Gibson to start his
own banjos. Burlile tone ring, Mahogany, Style 6 MOP Inlays,
impeccable workmanship and detail.
$3,100 or Best Offer.
1936 TB-3, FON 42-23. One piece flange teno
archtop. Possibly over-sprayed resonator. Original flange in
excellent condition, original hooks, pancake tuners and red-line case
included. Missing hoop and Tailpiece. Great candidate for
conversion to RB and/or flathead. $4,499 or Best Offer.
1935 TB-7. All original
except for the tuners. Full weight (3lbs+) High Profile Flat Head
$49,900 Click photo to inquire.
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.

1999 Prucha Fall-in-Love
This was purchased from Jaroslav
Prucha through Greg Boyd (check out Greg's site
and information on Prucha banjos here:
, or Prucha himself at
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.
