I know a Jenny, and I know a bushman. But I don't know a bushman Jenny.

It's a rare uke, considering they took orders and never sent the ukes. So, the fact that you have one, does that make you "in on it"?:)

Seeing is believing. How long did it take for your order to be fulfilled?

Gerald Ross has a Bushman Jenny concert size. See video above at 5:45 minutes to see the mythical beast.

But the Bushman Jenny Tenor size remains as elusive as Sasquatch himself.

Did you pilfer it from George Hinchliffe? I would love to have one, with the name and all, but alas, I like my love affairs with instruments to be more natural and organic - not the Hunt for Red Octoberesque.

So.......I got my Jenny about 4 + years ago from Hilo Guitar here on the Big Island.I have collected vintage for years and was just in the need of a tenor to strum while watching the ocean.Ken at Hilo was kind of pushing Bushman at that time(he actually gave a pair as door prizes at the Big Island Guitar and Ukulele Festival that year).
Anyway I went back a year or so later to see if he had any other Bushmans and he said he could not get them.It sounded as if the Bushman owner was kind of a highroller and was into other things and not able to supply product.Phone calls unaswered kind of thing.
I like my Jenny a lot.It's not the best uke I have ever had(that was a 5k I got from Bill Tapia) but it is a uke I tend to play alot.FWIW.
Aloha,
Michael

Bushman has changed suppliers numerous times in recent years.

Savagehenry has a concert Eleuke prototype that's actually a "Bushman Jenny." It's a pretty little thing. He just put some Living Waters strings on it and wow, did that thing come alive.
