Reed Chicago Standard at Ukulele Corner

My Reed & Co.

It has fluorocarbon strings on and is tuned g~C~E~A




What I have invited here is a Reed of Chicago Soprano form the first half of the 20's (Reed moved out of Chicago in 1926). The seller says it needs a neck reset so it was starting cheap with cheap postage from Trumpton, and as you don't see them very often I took a punt. Not quite unopposed this time but only one other person tried and they didn't try very hard so it's on the way over the pond to Ukulele Corner

And now it's here I'm not sure what the problem with the neck is? Clearly it has been in one or two wars though. However no cracks! Lot's (and lot's) of scratches, scrapes and bruises, but not cracks
