Lovely open backed Banjolele

Next off the production line is this really nice little open backed model.

This i believe was made by Margolin, who made the broadcaster range. look at the broadcaster uke i have on here, you will see the headstock is the same.

This uke was stripped and sanded, then finished with Tru-oil which gave a real nice look to the wood, it has really brought out the grain and given a slight shine too.
The uke has been completely re built. fitted with new skin, bone nut, tuners and tension hooks.
It has a neck with attached perchpole, this gives stability to the neck and it has a nice low action too.
The uke has a pleasant volume, good tone and banjoish woody sound too.
Easy to hold, a fun little uke!
