Markendale 'Silhouette' banjo-uke

Markendale 'Silhouette' Abbott-copy ukulele-banjo (c. 1993), Serial number: S04-93-006.
Crafted by Gordon Markendale of North Wales, this banjo ukulele was made in 1993 and was the sixth Silhouette produced.
Complete with original receipt of sale and certificate of authenticity addressed to long-standing member of the George Formby Society, Charles Stewart.
This earlier model features a spliced neck and monogramed tailpiece, two features Gordon discontinued shortly after production commenced, so this in itself is a rarity.
Wonderful condition and recently set up by the great Eddie Uttley for the Formby style of playing, along with a new vellum and minor repair work to the headstock. Cracks and repair are visible in certain lights, but this does not detract from this lovely instrument.
The uke comes accompanied with a lovely Shellard-made hard shell case. Reluctant sale due to the purchase of another instrument.
