Melody Junior, made by GH & S

Here is a nice basic entry model. made by George Houghton & Sons, probably around 1930. Fitted with the box resonator and 6 tension hooks. it is similar in design to the Dallas-B. other ukes in the range included the Melody Minor & Melody Major. Playing wise, its a decent little uke. bit of a woolly sound to it. all in, its a very decent starter uke. Has the usual odd bit of tarnish on the bezel, but set up to last for a good while yet! if i look this good when i'm 70 i'll be happy
its now fitted with a new calf skin vellum and Aquila strings.
