Wife is after me to sell the ukes I'm not playing. So here's another one.

Probably from the 50's or 60's, just a guess.


currently strung with Guadalupe brass wound CGEA [ lower octive strings.] I was experimenting with baris, I have 4, and to use these strings I had replace the friction tuners . couldn't dial in the right pitch with the friction pegs. I had these geared ones lying around and they work fine. will include the original ones.

Has an awesome bass sound when picked , but kind of muddy when strummed with these strings. Would be great to get some bottom end with in a uke group.

Action 3/16 at the 12th fret. saddle has been taken down as far as possible[like this when I got it]

In good shape, one small crack near heel, looks like it was banged/dropped there. about 3" long , stable, and not deep or very noticeable. see photobucket closeup. small chip on side of headstock, small ding on top near trim. various slight finish flaws, but looks pretty good for it's age. see pictures.good on poor, fair , good, vg, mint scale.

bridge and neck secure, brass frets and fretboard in good shape .

$120 + actual shipping w/o case.
Add $40 for new hsc.

here's a sound sample using my crappy webcam
