Saw this one on...of all places...Guitar Center. Repaired cracks and refin. Name is actually Anahu, can't fix my thread title.

Wow, do you know how old it is? It looks Nunes-ish to me. So maybe about the same time period?

Ad says from the 20's, I see it on this page: http://ukuleles.com/?page_id=1307

and here: https://antebelluminstruments.blogspot.com/2013/05/c1920-anahu-koa-soprano-ukulele.html

Funny how there's all that extra space above the nut, before the headstock flares out, in the Antebellum pic, what's that about?

My Druid Moon tenor, made in 2014, has extra space above the nut similar to this 1920's uke. A graceful design touch, but I'm not sure if it serves a specific function?

Pretty cool find. And as you point out, not something I would expect to find hanging on a wall at Guitar Center! You plan to buy it?

Nah, I already have an old soprano I can't play, but might if I didn't! :D I like old ukes though
