Dallas 'E' ukulele-banjo SOLD!

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 condition.
Someone with a little know-how and TLC will brush this up into a lovely piece. Some notes on the condition:

- 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.
