I am selling my banjolele built by the celebrated U.K. luthier, Phil Davidson. It is modeled after a Gibson UB-3 from the 1930�s with a removable resonator plate.It has a Birdseye Maple resonator plate and thick Birdseye Maple pot rim. Both are bound. She sports some unusual and beautiful nickel plated hardware. The fingerboard and peg head overlay are ebony and bound. It has the highest quality friction tuners which rival geared tuners. The head is real skin. The neck is laminated figured maple with a center strip to add strength. I believe that is ebony as well. It comes with an excellent hardshell case designed for this model banjolele. There are some exceedingly minor and barely distinguishable marks on the peg head so I will classify this as Very Good+ condition. The strings on there now are Worth Fluorocarbon Lights because I have it tuned ADF#B like Formby, but of course it can be tuned GCEA. Thanks for looking. www.davidsoninstruments.com

What a beauty! I play a custom tenor banjo uke but if I played soprano I can't imagine finding a nicer one and in a great case! Good luck!
