This Dallas 'E' model banjo-uke
is a post-war example, having no serial number
and a metal badge on the peghead rather than the
earlier mother-of-pearl inlay.
It used to be my
Grandad's who sadly died a couple of years ago.
I play guitar myself so I'd kept it in order to
learn to play at some point, but after two years
I've still not really touched it so it's best
that it goes to a better home.
My Grandad played this in his group '3LO' who
toured around the pubs and clubs of Blackburn and
Burnley in the 70's.
He then moved out to the Costa del Sol and
continued entertaining customers with it in the
bar he ran over there.
As a result it's been very well used and so shows
signs off this use and age, but from my point of
view taking this into account, it's not bad
Someone with a little know-how and TLC will brush
this up into a lovely piece. Some notes on the
- isolated bit of rust on one of the small metal
pegs in the body
- vellum appears in good condition
- some scuffs and scratches to the wood and
veneer, largely surface scratches
- bottom of body has a chunk of wood missing
about 2mm deep and 6cm long around body
- wear to the fret board
- requires some cleaning
It comes with some small spare items (such as a
bridge) and the hard case you see pictured.
Happy to arrange for you to come and have a look
(and a play).
Cash on collection preferred - I'd much prefer
not to courier it, especially if you've not seen
it in advance.
to collect or pay shipping/insurance from Central
Manchester address (UK).
