So I was at this little flea market and buried in the bottom of a box was a "Nelson" Ukulele made by Saini Guitars from the Phillipines. It was obviously banged and dinged and had been neglect a rater long time but the thing was still in tune. when I picked it up and began to play it. It is a 15 inch scale 8 and a half inches at the widest part of the body and five and a half at the waist and six and a half at the top of the body two and 3 quarters inches deep with 14 fret 12 to the body the neck is one and a half inches wide at the nut and 2 inches wide at the body. I can't identify the wood but it is solid. Sounds pretty nice. I paid 20 bucks for it...

Anyone ever hear of this yuke?
