A gorgeous example of a 1950’s Gibson Tenor Ukulele. This uke was constructed with a mahogany wood soundboard, back, and sides and a rosewood fingerboard with classic bridge pin set up for increased downforce at the saddle. The instrument remains in all original condition with a twelve fret joint to the body and eighteen overall frets to the soundhole.
These classic tenor model Gibson ukuleles are highly sought after by both musicians and collectors. They tend to have been played … and played… and played … and this one is no exception. It bears definite play wear, finish checking, and numerous nicks and dings – but along with this came a very refined and mature sound. The all mahogany wood construction lends itself to a very warm and balanced sound with exceptional low tones. The sustain and projection of this instrument is truly remarkable as well. Highly recommended ukulele for both the serious collector, musician, or ukulele enthusiast looking for that classic vintage sound.
