Hi there,
I found this thing the other day and could not find any info about it.
Does anyone know anything about it!
Its got wooden tuners and looks like it could have been made in the 1920's

Thanks Ukejenny,
So if it is a Kamaka knock off then its more likely made in the 30's or later?
i wonder if they only sold them in Japan?
I got it down here in NZ.

Here's a similar one that sold, with a little background info about Suzuki: http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/suzuki-violin-co-vintage-ukulele-290323753

Another small post on FMM:

Question asked by: Jim Wells
Subject: info on Suzuki Violin uke
Question: This was my late Mothers'... was wondering if you could shed any light on it? It has ser. # 5 inside. When made or value maybe? Thanks for any information! Regards, Jim Wells

Answer: Suzuki ukes have not much value....100 bucks maybe. It is a nice uke but not collected a lot......If you are going to try to sell it do it on our site called market place. I'd keep it if I were you....thanks...frets
