Well actually it arrived yesterday. But I'm just getting a chance to have a good play of it now. And she's a beauty! It's a Favilla Bros Baritone from (I think) the 1950s that I bought of the marketplace here. Already strung up with my favourite Southcoast Linear strings (thanks to bdukes!).

It's in impeccable condition for a 60ish year old uke after some quality luthier service a little while back. And the sound is just sweet as honey. All the charm and character of a vintage uke, with really good intonation decent projection and that warm mahogany tone. Kudos to the Favilla brothers! Happy Days!!!

It's beautiful! I played this 1960s Favilla baritone (http://gryphonstrings.com/instpix/35501/35501.php?z=y)at Gryphon Stringed Instruments in Palo Alto a while ago (it's since been sold), and it was sweet. I hope yours is as nice. Congratulations!
