Ones that got away!

Delving into my photo archive, i'm trying to find the first uke i restored.

Anyway i came across this picture, which compares the various shapes, sizes and designs of the BU.

In this picture there is (l-r)

A Dallas-C
My own Slingerland Maybell, the first BU i bought, this one is my "keeper"
A Jetel with lovely inlay
and lastly a Gibson UB-1. i wish i had kept this one. an absolute belter of a BU, with only a 6 inch pot, but what a uke!

The Jetel is now in the hands of a Dr in Austria, he kindly send me a picture of him playing it on the top of a mountain. a satisfied customer!!
