Ukulele Window Shopping

I think you can throw the ukulele in the skip, but the ukulele case in this lot is marvellous. It’s bashed, battered and scrawled on by a number of forgotten (as far as I know) vaudeville performers of the 1920s.

Quick, add this Ko’olau 400 SP to my Christmas list. It is a very pretty ukulele.

    Golly, that case is so cool! I’m going to have everyone sign my uke case too.

    One signature popped out: Ed Wynn, the Perfect Fool. See: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0943956/. Could be the same guy, the dates match.

    todd: Me either.

    Jodi: That’s exactly what I thought. I’ll need a more scribable case.

    Cool Bev: Excellent spot. Thanks very much for the info.

Got something to say?
