Selling my Rare100+/- yr old Vintage Lyon & Healy Bell Tiple, acquired yrs ago from the Tony Ku collection (pg 182 in Ku book) along with many others...all original condition, w/ original hard case... (serial #5395) no cracks,grain splits or repairs/ none needed. However there's signs of players wear to 1st 2 frets on fingerboard & strum area by soundhole, adds character...several small nicks & dark spots from age & use, none of which affect sound or playability...plays loud & punchy from body shape....Solid Spruce top, Mahogany back, sides & neck, Rosewood fretboard, steel strings...doubt original, probably replaced by Ku collection yrs ago. I've done nothing except strum it monthly to keep it alive, I'm a collector, not a player...thinning out duplicates in my collection. Ships well packed from Hawaii, USPS Priority mail, insured included...Sorry U.S. sales only
PayPal, Venmo or invoice through Square...will respond to all inquiries

Was the cigarbox uke really made by Kamaka? What kind of tuners does it have? These are both beautiful!
 
I've got some others like this Kamaka cigarbox & a Manuel Nunes original "taropatch" & this pair of David Mahelonas...a standard soprano & the rare Violin....both highly inlayed
