What are you talking about? Do you mean photo? or what?

yes, he means photo. It's spelled different other places.

That's a nice looking mando. Sorry I can't help you with your question. Others may.

Georgous finish. Beautiful work!
OK, how do we pronounce "Prucha"? Is the "u" long, as in "prudence"?
While we're at it; how do we pronounce Lebeda, Houlebek, and Capek?

LE beda, hollowbek chopek ....Prucha, I could only guess, but it looks to me like prooka

So now you're gonna tell me that "Jibson" ain't right?

It looks great! The right pronuouncation of the name(if it is from Czech origin) is "Proocha" - the "ch" is the same like greek letter X(chi not "eks") or like the J in the spanish (Juanitos, etc..)

Now I am totally confused. Is the "ch" pronounced as in "chocolate"?

Of course, I absolutely must learn to say "Sucek" correctly too. And real soon!

No, it is more similar to letter "h", like in world hand, but it isn't exact.. the similitude to the pronouncion a spanish letter "J" is exact..
