    Nice - I hope someone picks it up soon. I love banjo uses and this looks a great one, sort of in the tradition of my old Maybell, but bigger.

    Pardon me if I'm being dumb, but is this sold yet? I see sold at the top, but the bump date that's later looks like it's still for sale. Anyway, I'm interested. How Banjo-ish does it sound? I see most people mention Deering and maybe Gold Tone, but I don't have that kind of money. Even if you've sold it, if you can tell me what you thought about the sound I'd appreciate it.
    Thanks.

    I have purchased this uke and am awaiting delivery. I can answer your question when it arrives. My other banjo uke is not a guide as it is a Slingerland Maybell with only a 6 inch pot, with a hide head. It is not loud at all.

    Thanks. I guess I was just unclear on the concept. Yes, I'd appreciate you impression. I'd like something more banjo-ish.
