Experience the Elderly Difference
These Ludwig Wendell Hall banjo ukuleles, popularized in part by George Formby, were considered the "Cadillac" of banjo ukes in their day. This late 1920s model needs some TLC to return it to tip-top shape. Built in the U.S.A., it comes with the original hardshell case featuring green lining and the original gold "Ludwig" badge. This banjo ukulele is in Very Good Condition (VGC) except it needs new tuners, a new nut, a new fingerboard, etc. It is sold AS-IS.
