Hi John. Thanks for the greeting. I'm looking forward to meeting up with the group sometime!
Hi, John. It is a vintage ukelanjo. It belonged to my grandfather and as far as I can tell, it's from from the 20's-40's. La Pacific(a?) Octagon model. It needs some restoration, but the skin is in good condition. The frets are worn, tuners don't hold and the strings are clearly wrong. The neck is a bit loose too.
Thanks for the welcome, John. If you're going to be in California in September, you really should come up to the Napa Valley for the Wine Country Ukulele Festival, Sept. 7,8,9. www.winecountryukefest.com
