Hello Friends:

I'm re-listing this; I had it up for sale July of 2010 and decided to keep it another year. The condition is exactly the same as when photographed.
Here are the details:

WHAT: Gibson Uke 1, c. 1950s. Included is hard case. Currently has new Ping Tuners on it, but I did not in any way alter the uke to install. Included will be the old tuners which are fine, but old. In other words, the uke comes fitted with the new but you get both.

CONDITION: VG. No cracks, although there is a small finish crack on the back (no daylight through it, just the finish.) Scuffs, some scratches. But this is a great player.

WHY: I Really don't play it that much. Kept it cause I thought I would. But I play the Martin and Gretsch more, of the vintage ukes I have. This one needs to be re-homed.

COMPS: Compare this one, with a crack:

and
This, crack repaired

PRICE: UPDATE: $360 shipped CONUS.

I have a vintage banjole, but it is not at that value. But, I would be willing to swap it for a gibson soprano. It is restored, mahogany resonator, as well as a custom mahogany armrest. There are lots of pictures of it on the forum. Look at the latest treads with a search of "Bango"

would you be willing to trade for a lanikai custom series?

No thanks. Not a fan of that brand. I'd trade for an 80s vintage Kamaka, valued in the 300s. :-)

Thom,

Very nice Gibson. Great price. Can't believe it is still around.

Neither can I!~

Still willing to trade for a used Kamaka soprano, any year. Would also consider trade for used Koaloha pikake.

Gibson Uke 1 is a highly collectible uke, and when a shop gets a hold of one they charge accordingly. I paid in the high $400s for this one.

Thom - still available? I'll talk it up this Friday at Uke hut...It's a great price for that uke. I'm tempted myself, but also broke after getting that Gibson UB2. :)
