PRICE REDUCED! The ukulele craze took hold of the public in a big way, just before WW!. All of the major U.S. stringed instrument makers jumped on board the band wagon. After the depression hit, only Martin and Gibson continued to make ukuleles through WWII. This instrument, based on the tuning machines, appointments, and label inside, indicates that it was probably made in the early ‘40s.

All mahogany construction with a two toned sunburst, black buttoned friction pegs, single strand top binding indicate the style 1. Two unique features, i.e. the “made in U.S.A. stamp on the back of the peg head and on the inside label, indicate that this instrument was made to be exported to Canada.

The tonal quality was enjoyed for many years by player in Canada, as well as its easy action and excellent playability before it found its way back to the states to be enjoyed by folks here in the U.S.A.

A very clean, lovely sounding soprano, this little treasure deserves a new home.

$625 incl. modern gig bag.


United States, Port Ludlow, WA, 98368
