Presto Tailpiece

Ordered the Presto to get my Gibson Earl Scruggs 5 string back to original, I now have that 1930's sound again. It is possible to fall in love all over again.

I'm overhauling a 1978 japanese Tokai banjo, The original and correct tailpiece is a presto. The Prucha Presto tailpiece is the same as the original tailpiece. Perfect.
Thanks, Bill Emerson

I was glad Stewmac had this tailpiece because they are not easy to find right now. I've been a customer for over twenty years and I've never had a bad experience with Stewmac. Shipping is fast and accurate, with regular updates on the shipment.

Poor quality

By

Verified Buyer


Bought this tailpiece as a replacement on an '89 Granada. Had planned to have it gold plated, but it was cracked in the bend. Both ends had stress cracks in it, obviously done when manufactured. Material was thinner than the original. In my opinion, if they can't reproduce it as good or better than the originals, they shouldn't flood the market with a cheaper version. I think it would have broken if I had installed it. I returned it for a refund, no way I would pay good money to have this faulty tailpiece gold plated or engraved. I intend to contact Prucha and give them my opinion of their quality.

Response from StewMac


We're sorry to hear the Prucha Presto Tailpiece didn't meet your expectations.

Perfect replacement for a 1930s Grover Presto

By

Verified Buyer


This is the most accurate reproduction of an original Grover Presto that I have seen. After mine arrived from StewMac I compared it to an original I have- and it was virtually identical. Even the weight of the original Presto and Prucha's Presto was identical on my digital scale! Highly recommended for anyone looking for a new Presto tailpiece designed exactly like the ones of the late '20s and 1930s.

Terrific tailpiece, great sound

By

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!
