And to find one in this condition, is even more rare.The body is made of solid ribbon mahogany, with a beautiful grain pattern.It sounds mellow and rich, almost like a pineapple ukulele.
The surprising thing is, it's actually easy to play, too.The ivoroid button barrel tuners work great, and stay in tune.Lyon & Healy's trademark "smile" bridge with four matching bone pins. Ivoroid front and back binding, with a bone saddle and nut.Ivoroid heel cap and "Kite" logo on headstock.Rosewood fretboard with pearl shell dots and 12 frets to the body, 17 total.This unusual ukulele is not only fun to play, and a great conversation piece,but also a real piece of history. Every serious ukulele collector should have one!
