Prucha Presto Banjo Tailpiece

About This Item

The nonadjustable tailpiece preferred by most professional players for the traditional Scruggs bluegrass sound.

Made of stamped nickel-plated brass. Also available in a polished unplated model, suitable for engraving or matching a vintage look on new builds or restorations. It has a hinged cover for easy string changes, and can be installed on 5-string or 4-string banjos.

Nickel-plated screw, attachment bolt and nut included with each tailpiece.

A tailpiece bracket or endbolt is needed for installation.

Terrific tailpiece, great sound

By

Verified Buyer


I am not well-experienced with banjo setup, but my tailpiece was damaged. I bought one of these because there are terrific setup videos focused on the Presto tailpiece and how stable they can be. I watched it several times, then installed this tailpiece. It's great! Very stable, and once you learn some of the tricks to removing loose action from the screw, etc., you have maybe the best tailpiece around. I like having a banjo part that is so well-supported from a repair and DIY perspective. I like the quality of the tailpiece as well. Looks great on my blue banjo!

The tailpiece I ordered was shipped and arrived promptly. It was an exact match for the one I needed to replace and was, therefore easy to install...extremely happy with my purchase.

Super Tailpiece for Gibson

By

Verified Buyer


A great copy of the real thing. Well made for a old Gibson replacement.
The best I've seen. I hope you all will someday carry the whole Prucha
line of pre-war banjo parts for gibsons. Their tone ring is one of the best
next to a real 30's I've used. Nuff Said
