This is a great 1920's banjo uke with classic tone in great condition! Mahogany neck and rim, mahogany plate-style resonator, friction pegs with white buttons, very little wear. Includes original semi-hardshell case. $399 plus shipping. Please PM with questions!

Here's a video showing some photos. The soundtrack is me chunking along on Five Foot Two on the uke:


See next post for another video!

And here's me flailing away on it during the 32d Season of the Ukulele:

Rich, that video is awesome! My family pretty much hates me due to the ukuleles I play all day that are made out of wood, so I better stay away from this thing, but it sounds incredible. Good stuff.

Happy Halloween bump!

She is in a great shape, and the case is still intact...one nice little banjo here. If I didn't have five already, she'd be mine. Love those little Slingerlands

That's a nice sounding and looking Banjolele. Lordy I am tempted.

If you are into banjo sounds and music this would be a great instrument to have.
Might be great with blue grass music.

It is a nice one. I love it, but as you might surmise from my sig, I'm a little over-uked now :)

Hi Rich, I am wanting to sell/trade my mahogany tenor for a good banjole because I just don't play the tenor as much as I thought I would. Here is a picture of my mahog tenor. It was one I got from Bruce Wie a couple years ago that undergone one of my renovations and set up. I set it up with low action, installed an pickup (yeah, as you can see by the sound holes, that was a very challenging feat.. lol), and refinished it with clear Nitro lacquer. Here are a couple pictures of it if you might be interested.
