Early Hawaiian Made Sopranos are like Busses...

Yes that's right I have managed to get another early Hawaiian made soprano and I know this one is Hawaiian made because it has a proper Tabu mark on the back of the headstock. This dates it to before 1926 and since it was made by the Aloha Manufacturing Co. which started in 1918 I can narrow the age down pretty well. But its the quality that excites me - Aloha were another respected brand from the first golden age of Hawaiian Ukulele manufacture

It's Here!!

It came in a natty 1960's case and is spectacular (but the frets could do with a dressing - classic bar frets too)
