The Abbott Banjo Ukulele
|This instrument is an unusual
Abbott design. There were only SIX of these instruments made to order. Having fourteen
tension rods, sixteen frets and a flat back resonator, this is a powerful instrument with
crisp clear sound. Based on the Gibson UB2.
It has a mahogany spliced neck, hoop and resonator with a chromium plated ring. The pull down bottom tension rods are actually set in the ring. New silver steel tensioners have been fitted due to breakage of the original chrome brass type.
This instrument was originally made to order for a member of the GFS, for a cost of £86 in the mid 70s, including a case.
It was sold to another member of the GFS who purchased it for £150 just over 12 years ago.
