Up for sale is my very good condition Favilla Baritone, circa 1960, Style B-2, Serial Number: 115263. Vintage solid mahogany, no cracks, original finish. The finish is in very good shape, but there is finish wear, as well as some small dings and scratches. The finish also has some very slight crazing in spots. The fretboard looks great and has no noticeable wear, and the working tuners are original. This is about as nice as a Favilla Baritone as you might find these day. Price includes ukulele, modern hard case.

This Favilla Baritone produces warm rich sound and has a wonderful and resonant tone with plenty of sustain. I love the sound of this uke, but I am playing a recent 21” scale Talsma mahogany bari more often.

Sound sample with Martin fluorocarbon strings.

Hey Doc_J, I have one of these, beautiful baritones. I have been looking for a hard case that it will fit in. What is the maker of the case, you have yours in ?

The case I got, that fits well, is a Musicians Gear Baritone Uke case. Purchased from Musicians Friend.
