(( SALE is SOLD. - off to Carnival! ))
I got this originally because I'd never actually seen one in person- not common in California, Only seen one in 10 years and was $750
So I snatched it up because it seemed like a great find- Just cant get used to the hillbilly twang -
Here is What I got:
1930 UB-1 Gibson Banjo UKE
(Purchased in person at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville)
quite nice- see pix album:
General Description: mahogany stained laminated maple rim and flat plate resonator, 6'' skin head, 10 brackets, maple neck, dyed pearwood fingerboard, dot inlays, 17 frets, script logo straight across headstock, mechanical friction tuners with black buttons,1-1/4'' ebony nut, new bridge piece, 12-1/2'' scale

What am I looking for - a nice concert or pineapple uke
I am a wood grain nut....

trade value $550 (My cost including shipping & insurance)

NEW cash sale: $435 shipped (( SALE PENDING))

My brother-in-law just got one of these, the guy he bought it from had the original case also! It sounds really, really good!

Someone will be happy with this!
