I was reading some infor about the famous luthier Kerry Char and how he came to learn about "Radio Tenor". What is a "Radio Tenor"? I did a Google search but didn't have any luck finding it.

Is it like a "cigar box" uke where the body is a cigar box? Or a "juke-A-Lele" where the body looks like a jukebox? So a "Radio Tenor" has a radio-like body? :confused:

It's a very rare vintage ukulele. There is one for sale right now on eBay.

I nearly drop my jaw when I saw the uke........... but when I saw the price, my head dropped.

That is the trouble with reading the UU forum, too many temptations coming from the UU mates.
