This Uke came to us with cracks and a loose brace. The last photo, is an internal shot showing an example of how all cracks have been brought back together and backed up with diamond supports as necessary.  Peter Meyer, our in house luthier, has restored it and brought it back to its former glory... and glorious it is! It is now as solid as the day it was made.

We sell a lot of ukuleles, including old Martins from the 20s, and I have never played a uke this nice. You pick it up and its so light, it feels like a potato chip.  It is loud, loud, LOUD! It sings like a bird with the sweetest tone...The action is the lowest I have ever played on a ukulele and yet no buzzing.  It is all original with original finish, the old bar frets, and original friction pegs that are still working well. 

I just play a little uke. I'm mostly a guitar player, but I know whoever ends up with this uke will embark on a love affair for the ages.  Did I wax eloquent on my feelings about this instrument? Well maybe I'm a little over the top, but I can't say enough about this little soprano. It has to be played to be be believed.
