When America was swept by the great Hawaiian craze in 1915, the most recognizable result was the emergence of the ukulele as an instrument heard on records and radio, and featured in vaudeville, theaters and motion pictures. American instrument manufacturers rushed ukes to the market as fast as they could turn them out.
This ukulele was made Gretsch using the traditional designs of Nunes, Dias and Esparto Santo. Its a sweet sounding example constructed from highly-figured curly mahogany, and rivals the original Hawaiian-made instruments for tone.
So sweet one may consider taking insulin after hearing it! This ukulele was originally set up at the factory in the traditional Hawaiian style, with slightly higher action than today’s instruments, but with more volume and punch.
