I have a couple sopranos from the 1920s to move on. Both of these ukes have a wonderful vintage look and the beautiful sound of aged mahogany.

The first is a Lyon & Healy Washburn ukulele. I got this a few years ago because I thought it would be neat to have a vintage Chicago made ukulele, since that is my hometown. It has some play wear, but there are no cracks. Bridge was regluded before I owned it (see pictures). It plays well and has a great vintage tone. It does not have a case, but I will pack it well for protection. Excellent entry into the vintage ukulele world. $SOLD shipped CONUS.

Next is a 1927-1932 Martin. It has no cracks or repairs. There are a couple wear marks on the bottom where it looks like it sat on a stand. There is also a ding on the back. I tried to capture all the flaws in the pictures. The vintage friction pegs work perfectly. It is currently strung with Martin strings and has the great vintage Martin tone. It comes with both the hard case as well as the vintage canvas gig bag shown in the photos. $500 shipped CONUS.

I just bought a Kamaka soprano from WC. It was exactly as he described it including any flaws he found. Was shipped the next morning with 2 or three day mail. It came in two. I have no hesitation buying from him again. A very upright, honest man.

The two showing are really nice. Good luck with the sale. Whomever buys them are getting quality instruments.
