View Full Version : Telleno ukuleles?

Hi, all --

Has anyone ever heard of/does anyone know anything about Telleno ukes? A friend (undoubtedly under my influence, hah hah) found one in an antique store for $15. He said the tuners need some attention (loose), but other than that, it seemed to be in pretty good shape. I googled it and came up with multiple references to Telleno parlor guitars (mostly on eBay), and found one reference to it in a UU thread from three years ago. It looks to me like it might have been part of the Harmony instruments of the 1960's, most likely quite low-end.

Thanks for any insight anyone can provide. He's going to send me some photos, but I think it will just look like a uke made of wood with "Telleno" across the headstock - nothing very specific.

Ah, thanks. Now that you mention it, I think I did see that but blew right past it because I couldn't watch YouTube videos where I was. That's what happens when I try to do three things at once.
