Resonator Model Banjo Ukulele, made by Harmony, c. 1926, made in Chicago, brown varnish finish, laminater maple and mahogany rim, mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard.
Overall length is 22 1/4 in. (56.5 cm.), 7 3/4 in. (19.7 cm.) diameter head, and 3 in. (7.6 cm.) deep. Scale length is 14 in. (356 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/16 in. (30 mm.).

A nice original example of a medium-high-grade resonator banjo-uke from the 1920s. Except for a newer bridge, all of the hardware is original. There is some light wear overall and dirt on the head, and a small signature in very neat penmanship "F Meyer" on the lower quarter. The only damage is a couple of odd chips out of the edge of the resonator rim near the tailpiece.

This is a well-made uke with good quality tuners and hardware and decorative marquetry inlay to the lower rim and resonator back. Not as fancy as some, but a good-sounding and playing "pro-grade" banjo-uke. Very Good + Condition.
