A Gold Plated Ludwig
Display Model

This display instrument is one of the finest examples of its kind. Designed to yield the maximum of display beauty, it is gold plated and engraved. It has an ebony fingerboard with pearl inlaid position figures. The resonator, neck and all wood parts are of genuine American walnut., the resonator being inlaid with a beautiful decorative wood inlay in colours. It has sixteen top tension brackets and sixteen nickel silver frets. Ludwig ‘PLANET’ 4 : 1 tuning pegs also gold plated. Has a detachable arm rest.

These are most sought after by instrument collectors and players not only for the high quality of construction and finish, but also for the fabulous sound produced, particularly when playing in the GEORGE FORMBY style.

George Formby did own a nickel plated, standard Ludwig Banjo Ukulele which was featured in his films ‘Feather Your Nest’, ‘Bell Bottom George’, ‘South American George’, ‘Much Too Shy’ and ‘Get Cracking’. He also played it in ‘The Friday Show’ when he sang ‘Guarding the Home of the Home Guard’.
