Selling another stunning uke from my collection to fund a Wendell Hall.
The iconic Maybell by one of the best manufacturers of the twenties, Slingerland.
This uke is in excellent all round condition it has some wear and tear as you would expect from a model of this vintage. The neck is solid birds eye maple (very unusual ) and the pot is birds eye maple veneer. The resonator is black gloss. The fingerboard is ebony and has some fingernail divots see photograph. If I was keeping this I would probably replace it but for the sake of originality have left it as is. Eight inch calf skin vellum head with 16 tensioners all original. Only one of the tuners appears to have been replaced.
This model has a quarter inch tone ring under the head (only quality instruments were fitted with these) Complete with original case.
These Slingerlands are rarely available in New Zealand, I have never seen the even rarer resonator model for sale here.
Good Luck
