For Sale: 2018 Prucha Spirit Lightweight - A Back Saving Fully Engraved Masterpiece
For sale is a banjo from my personal collection and one that has toured heavily with Kentucky Thunder in the last 5 years. This Prucha Spirit is a custom banjo Jarda built for me when I needed a world beater lightweight banjo.
The banjo truly is a work of art and features deeply hand engraved metal parts. The pattern is one you'll only find on one of Jardas banjo and includes; the tension hoop, flange, armrest and tail piece. It also received his blasted matte finish and gold plating. The wood on the banjo is maple with a 24 fret speed neck that plays like a dream. It also has a burst resonator with concentric rings. It also features a custom mastertone block with digitized copy of my signature.
Best of all is the tone, I asked him for a world beater and that's exactly what this is. The banjo has his lightweight rim with a brass hoop fitted to the very top that gives the banjo a total weight of 9.7 pounds. I've used this banjo on countless Kentucky Thunder shows, Opry Shows, Ryman Shows & various recordings. I'm selling it with Jarda's blessing only because I've had an incredible opportunity come my way and I can't keep both.
Banjo comes with a Guardian hardshell case.
Thanks for looking,
