Markendale 'Silhouette' banjo-uke
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
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
welcome/preferred, from Wrexham, North Wales. Otherwise
buyer to arrange & fund carriage/insurance.
