Harmony cranked out thousands of these cute li'l ukes in the 1940s and 1950s. Many have fallen victim to neglect, while others have been subjected to the ignominy of added guitar tuning machines, Testors rattle-can finishes, and other well-intentioned modifications.
We love these little guys and would buy every one we came across if it weren't for one issue: intonation. Whether equipped with real frets or molded fretboards, the majority of these we come across have awful intonation--we pass on three or four instruments for every one that we purchase. This instrument, however, sounds delightlfully in-tune from first-position chords to single note runs near the neck joint.
It features solid wood construction, faux tiger maple grain painted over birch, painted-on binding, original friction tuners, and a one-piece, molded plastic fretboard. This toneful (and fun) ukulele can be yours. SOLD!
