Unusual Banjo Uke from Rockport estate in March 7th auction

banjo ukeWaverly Music Prodcts Banjo Uke

One of my favorite things to find in old homes is a stringed instrument. Recently in Rockport I found an item which I had no idea of what it was when I found it. It looked like a very short banjo. Shorter than a tenor banjo but very well built.

It turns out that it’s a Ukelele, to be specific, a banjo Uke. It has it’s original case, paperwork and even some old strings.

Since I’m in Gloucester MA, and there are more talented musicians here per capita than probably anywhere else on the planet, I’m really jazzed to have it in my March 7th auction coming up. 

I’m hoping to get it set up before the sale, but it still needs a bridge. (An accessory that should be no problem to find) If you’re in the Gloucester MA area, and may have a Uke bridge to fit this, please let me know, I’d be happy to compensate for your help!

This Banjo Uke is in excellent condition, it was made by Waverly Music Products co. Here’s a link to one that sold  on eBay recently. The one in my auction will be sold without reserve.
