And it's very much "Hecho En Mexico" (it says so on the sound hole stamp) The plastic fretboard does make it look a bit like a Harmony from a distance but it is clearly a very different Ukulele close up; it was constructed with a "Spanish Heel" neck joint for a start. Very different bridge, very different headstock well very different neck altogether; and it looks like there is a bit of a bow in it? Whether this is due to age or whether it was made like that I will probably never know as I doubt I'll see another one. Another question I can't answer at the moment is what the stickers that were on the back were, (the one on the headstock is in the same sort of place as "Made in Japan" stickers are on Japanese ukes of a similar vintage, but why would it have a made in Mexico sticker here as it already has the stamp in the sound hole?) or whether they were original or aftermarket add ons? (My guess would be aftermarket). You can see it was fairly cheaply made as along with being all laminate the body joints, though still firm, are rather visible That it's cheaply made is not to say it's not well made though, it is all still very solid for a 45 year old Ukulele and holds it tuning well too. As you can see getting in Ukulele Corner has been a bit of an education for me - Thank you Corpus Christi School Board
Another thing that I don't know whether it's aftermarket or not, is the green vinyl carry bag? It's certainly contemporary with it and something I will keep in a safe place too. It's not a very good bag but it adds to the overall story.
