Mauna Loa Ukulele
Item # 000428
Vintage Soprano Ukulele
This is a little beauty from the late '50s early '60s and made in the USA of moulded plastic, but don't be put of by that as they sound every bit as good as many quality wood ukuleles!
In fact they were played by many respectable musicians back in the day, and endorsed by the famous Arthur Godfrey!
Originally designed by the guitar maker, Mario Maccaferri, the plastic ukulele was incredibly popular until the decline of the uke in the late '60s.
This original even has vintage coloured strings fitted for added sex appeal!
9/10 with no cracks, only some scratches and general wear and tear mainly on the back.
She sounds fabulous with those strings and stays in tune too!
