Description

Here we have a fun piece of history. This is a plastic Emenee Flamingo soprano from the 1950s. It features the original pitch pipes for tuning which all still work (which is very rare.) Making this even cooler – it even has the original Arthur Godfrey chord finder. This clever unit allows you to simply press a button for a chord eg one button for D7, one button for G7 etc. So cool! And it still works!

Because of the chord finder the action is super high and it could do with new strings. But it’s just so much fun and a really neat bit of uke history. I love this!!
