I hate it when you watching something, thinking about it, then BOOM, its gone.

The price dropped from $495 to $250, and that was it.... not mine now.

Anyone else have one they would like to part with?

From the picture it does not look like a Washburn to me. The neck looks more like Gretsch and the bow tie flange holes are something I always associated with Harmony. If I am right then the instrument could have been put together from parts.
But I am sure the folks at Bernunzio know a lot more about vintage instruments than I do.

I just thought the 18 inch scale length was kinda neat.

One of my favorite things to play now is a Vega tenor with a scale length just under 20, also set up to play uke with nylon strings.

Definitely a Gretsch, so consider yourself lucky that you were not the purchaser.

Not wanting to hijack the thread, but I have noticed loads of things misidentified in Bernunzio offerings recently. At first I pointed out the mistakes to whomever checks the email, but now I just let nature take its course.

Gretsch made some decent banjo ukes. This particular model was unusual & definitely worth $250, (like you said, ....you missed it.
