John Grey ukulele-banjo with Ibanez pickup

1930s John Grey banjo-uke, to which has been added an Ibanez banjo pickup, stuck on the vellum right next to the bridge. The pickup is wired to a standard jack plug, fitted into the wall of the pot. This was all done before I acquired the uke, but all is in working order, tested today. Of course this can be played as an acoustic banjo-uke as well!
This is an unusual uke as it is slightly larger than some: 23.5" overall length, 13.5" scale length, and with a 10-inch pot which provides a mellow sound, so, on electrification it is not too harsh. It has a metal resonator plate on the back, which also enhances the acoustic sound. The circular logo plate on the peghead dates this as pre-WWII. There is also a John Grey logo badge on the resonator, and serial number, G5977. All parts seem to be original from its 1930s manufacture, and all work as they should, including the tuners. I have intentionally left it in its 'original' state, (including the vellum) as I think this adds character, but it could be refurbished to look like new if someone wished, the wood and metalwork are sound. Comes in a brand new hard case, complete with key and lock!
