Overview: 

Charming old American Uke ( not Hawaiian ) that we have not been able to identify, it is all solid mahogany with old banjo tuners currently fitted, we may put wooden friction pegs on yet, it looks and sounds wonderful and it has it's original period case also in good condition. Has nice rope binding and a classic V neck profile. It also has the unusual carved headstock which usually meant top of the line back then. This is a really nice piece and not expensive if you want to try the ukulele and don't want a newbie this could be the one for you. We are now almost certain this is from the Schierson Brothers outfit in San Francisco ~ it has the construction hallmarks and rosette inlay of this esteemed maker, Whatever the price its too low and if it doesn't sell soon she'll be going up! Truly a great uke. Now fitted with Ebony pegs - new repro items from a local craftsman - thanks Peter!! Renew, reuse recycle - gotta love that !!
