Prucha Nickel Plated Flange


Banjo aficionado Jaroslav Prucha is obsessed with pre-war banjos, like those made by Gibson in the 1920s and ’30s. Studying an original flange, Prucha found marks that reveal secrets of how it was machined and plated. Now he’s creating perfect copies of that 80-year old flange from the Kalamazoo factory.
