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)
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!!
