1930/1931 Gibson Style 3 UkuleleIncludes Original Soft Carry Bag1930 or 1931 (2nd owner couldn't remember) Gibson Style 3 Ukulele. This is the Les Paul Custom equivalent of Pre-War Ukuleles complete with ornate inlays, binding, and headstock treatment. It is 95% original with one of the tuners having been replaced decades (2nd owner says 1960s) ago with the correct match- it just doesn't show quite as much age. It is freshly set-up and ready to play. There are two cracks on the back that have been professionally repaired (precision glued, not cleated to preserve the instrument's integrity) in our shop (see pictures). Some light cracking at the end of the fretboard (see close-up). Mild dings/impressions along the outer sides (see pictures). Original carry case in very nice shape with all the snaps still functioning. No additional modifications or repairs outside of the two back cracks. Zero work needed to play and love right out of the box.Shipped flat-rate to guarantee full shipping insurance coverage
