Slingerland Maybell model 24
Described in the original 1930s catalogue as " Genuine walnut throughout, 8 inch shell all professional model. equipped with heavy centred grooved top band, heavy cast brackets, flat head hooks, highly polished. Duco finished natural walnut colour. a very popular seller. price $12.00" Unbelievable $12. thats only £6!! I would add, a very powerful instrument. nice to play. great tone and good, loud but not unpleasant rich volume. Comparable to a Gibson UB-2 in most aspects, but about half the price! (in 1930 and today) This uke is currently for sale. please enquire for prices.
