    Those Flamingos are difficult to find with the pitchpipe still intact. Of course, you wouldn't want to use them, unless you gave them a thorough scrubbing. Still, this is a nice find, if the action is good. My Flamingo's action is a bit high for my taste but it's still a good player.

    Looks like it has indeed been snapped up.

    "Original case"? I don't think they came in cases, but in boxes. "Early 1900's"? More like 1950's.

    See if you can get picks. I'd like to see them. Odds are, it's not worth $75.

    I'll email him and post the pics if he sends them.

    OK,

    Pros: It's a dark uke body and headstock with white fret board. I've seen those rarely - usually it's the opposite. But I don't know if they made fewer like this one, or these types just don't show up on Ebay as much.

    Looks like it's in good shape. The "inlays" are still in good painted shape.

    Cons:

    That case didn't come with it originally. And since it;s a crappy case (excuse my language), it's worth nothing. Yuck!

    The pitchpipe, which should be on the headstock, is missing.

    I'd need to see a side shot to see its action. My Flamingo's action is kind of high.

    My impression - if good action, I would pay 40 bucks.

    Thank you for posting the pics.
