    Default Can you identify this old ukulele?

    This was my grandmother's uke. I think it spent 30-40 years in the attic of her old farmhouse in central Maine. No label. Koa, slightly arched back. Plays nice!

    No clue, but my two cents is just to keep it. Looks cool. Besides, it belonged to grandma.

    It appears to be a close match to the Supertone, under "Ukuleles by Other Makers". In particular, the headstock, fretboard extension, and bridge/saddle shape are the same. A listing by reverb.com for a sold Supertone described it as circa 1920, likely made in Chicago. The one on reverb also had the same inlay on the fretboard. I'd love to stumble across one of these in someone's attic. Amazingly good shape for an attic find.
