    Default Vintage Lyon and Healy Ukulele on ebay...Not a Baritone...

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=p5197.c0.m619

    Just a heads up on this one. I emailed the seller but no response. The listing says Baritone but the measurements he gives suggest tenor all over the place. Especially when Lyon and Healy didn't make a baritone. (If they did, it would be worth a bundle, since baris really didn't show up until the 50's)

    Hey MMStan,
    The seller changed the title to tenor. Better for collectors. It is a great model but I'm not interested. I'm keppingbmy eyes peeled for interesting baritones

    Good luck if you bid.

    At $650 BIN, it's a good price. Elderly has one in stock now at $800.

    And a few months ago had this gorgeous Grand Symphony for 2k. Realty nice but nothing I could ever afford.
