I just purchased an Ashbury banjo ukulele from Alan 'Uke' Harris which he has upgraded for George Formby style playing, with a new calfskin vellum and a flat wooden resonator and a case which all added up below 300
including P&P! CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thw waiting-part is awfull. My third Dolphin was send to me yesterday, and although I have two Dolphins to play with, I just keep thinking about that third one. Where is it? How is it? How is the packing? When will it be here?
I call it Ukulele Waiting Agony or UWA (ooh-wah).

:D I suffered that when I was waiting for my Ozark Uke Banjo not long back.
Was so relieved when it arrived safely - I ain't got kids, but as an expectant ukedaddy I was happy to see it arrived in good health! :D

Sounds great! Be really interested to hear how you like it when it arrives. Still looking for that perfect banjo uke. I've got my Firefly but it's not very 'Formby'.

So I got to open it the day it arrived. And now it is March and I have learned numerous Formby tunes. Check my YouTube channel (the featured video is crap)
