c.1925 Banjo Ukulele w/Canoe Decal


Here's a great little "California style" banjo uke, inline rim, with all-original parts, and a very sweet canoe (and "lovers") decal adorning its skin head.


Work included a fret dress, setup, new strings, cleaning, and a bit of glue to clamp up a seam on the back that was open. It's crack free, which is nice.



Rare, and very cool/desirable decal. Note the "Neptune" on the canoe.



Finish is a red/black sunbursty tone all over.


Smaller-than-usual but nicely working friction tuners.


F-holes on the rear!



Original tailpiece. This uke will accept both steel uke sets and nylon.
