c. 1950s Martin Style 0 Soprano uke at Pittsburgh Guitars c. 1950s Martin Style O Soprano Ukulele
A clean example from the 1950s, solid mahogany, with some scratches and dings. Plays great, holds its tuning forever, and sounds rich and sweet. Price includes a non-original hard padded case. (picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6)
c. 1920s Stromberg-Voisinet Banjo Uke at Pittsburgh Guitars c. 1920s Stromberg-Voisinet Banjo-Uke
This little beauty measures 22 1/4" from top to bottom, with a 14" scale, and a slotted diamond headstock inlay. It has an 8" pot with 16 tension hooks and a calf skin head, and a decorative multi-colored wooden band around the banjo body and on the resonator. It's in really good condition, with a couple dings and scratches, and lots of (mostly) small splatters of white paint. It does not have a case. (picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6)
c. 1928 Paramount Style B Tenor banjo at Pittsburgh Guitars 1928 Paramount Style B Tenor Banjo
Famous the world over in its time, and highly sought after by dance band players in the 1920s, Paramount banjos were marketed as "The Banjo with Piano Volume and Harp Quality." The position markers are a fancy pearl design, and the headstock is decorated with stylish pearl inlays. This banjo is almost completely original, with calfskin head, and in excellent overall condition given its age. It has assorted dings and scratches, one replacement tuner, and the playwear you'd expect from an 86-year old instrument. There is a crack in the heel that was repaired when we got it. Price includes good original hard case. (picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7)
