This is one of my all time favourite vintage ukes that I have played. Gibsons have their own tone as compared to vintage Martins – a little bit of a mellower darker tone. This one sounds beautiful with such a warm voice. The 3 was Gibsons top end model, which they adorned with beautiful mother-of-pearl decorations on the headstock and fretboard. The rosette is hand inlaid rope style. This one is in great condition for a nearly 100 year instrument with just one back crack which is tight and had been professionally repaired.
It features the original tuners that still work perfectly – super smooth and easy to turn. It has a wonderfully rich open tone.
