The resonator attaches with 4 small screws into the flange on the post war model, and there is no perch pole inside the pot. The finish on the later models was a thick bright red finish too.
When this uke arrived at the restoration barn it was in a very poor state with a battered fretboard and very worn finish.
I removed the remains of the original finish and polished the hardware. New tuners were fitted and the resonator was repaired. A slight red stain was added before finishing the uke with Tru-oil.
A very pleasing restoration to one of my favourite ukes.
