c.1920 Harmony(?) soprano. Solid curly mahogany body with rosewood nut. Top edge rope binding and inlaid around sound hole. New bridge duplicated from a original. Replacement a smaller footprint so you can see the outline where the original was. Glossy finish still in great shape after all these years. Finish wear on the fret board 1st-3rd frets. Some flaking top side around the pegs. 1/2" zig zag hairline crack not following wood grain. Starts from the sound-hole at the 11:45. Almost directly below the "C" string. Can not feel it if rubbed over with finger. Couple of pin prick chips missing from sound-hole inlaid. Inlaid is all tight as is the rope binding. Normal wear on the top with some strum marks. Back is very clean. Paper label is missing as seen in the photo with the glue residue present.
Case in okay shape. Drop bottom latch works, handle replaced at some point. Lining intact with no rips/tears.
Stays in tune and intonation is good. "C" off abit at the 12th. Sounds nice, new GHS strings.
Here's a link to what appears to be a "sister" uke.
