Picked up a ukulele at the Goodwill yesterday. Its label has
Randriamanerasoa Alexandre Edouard
# 032 02 306 13 it's an 8 string
it also has AKO guitare and I believe French writing in it.

Can anyone tell me more about it ?

Thanks

Its probable not an ukulele, but a mandolin of some type.

Pics would be essential. This is a visual medium, please use it that way!

By the way "32" is the country code for Belgium. I'll bet that number is a phone number. Try calling it. That would be consistent with French writing, and the name is very French.

The last name sounds Malagasy. Probably French of Madagascar descent.

This article in French is from a Madagascar newspaper. Looks like father/son guitar luthiers.
