So, when I wrote this post last week, "Banjolele, the hunt begins!", I'm not sure how I missed this auction for a gorgeous Banjo Ukulele.
It took a tweet from UkuleleJim to make me take notice! This banjolele looks to be in exceptional condition and, as you saw in my earlier post, new ones often go for nearly $500. Folks, this looks to be a good opportunity to score one of these awesome instruments at a bit of a discount! Here are some notes from the auction:
This is a concert scale, 8" dia. head banjolele built by WaverlyStreet. Tunable synthetic head (w/ tuning wrench), chrome geared tuners, and polished aluminum arm rest. Slightly spalted oak neck & peghead, stained oak finger board with 15 frets. Strung with Aquila nylon gut strings, tuned GCEA. Sounds great!
Fits in a Hohner Lanikai concert size ukulele case, probably others (no case included).
Best of luck!
