National #001: Ukulele Window Shopping

National Style 1 ukulele prototype. It’s the first of the new line of National ukes, numbered 001 given to the guy who provided his triolion for examination.

In the war of the guiatar lookalikes I think the cutest are the Tomo Strat and Les Paul. In a similarly guitar-like vein is this electric Tiki Idol (via Phredd).

1930s Maybell.

Manuel Nunes uke from the early 1900s. The ivoroid tuners look strange to me but they’re apparently an original upgrade.
