This is a really intriguing (and fabulous!) ukulele. Le Domino were made in the 1920s by J R Stewart and then in the 1930s by Regal. They’re highly collectible because of their iconic Art Deco style domino designs and great sound. I’ve not been able to date this one as I’m struggling to find info on this rare version. Whereas most were made entirely of birch this one has a birch back and sides with a solid spruce top. The top has aged beautifully and has an almost orange hue to it.
Not only is it rare but it also is incredibly playable with a low action, no buzzing and a straight neck. The flat fretboard to body (styled on the early Hawaiian ukes) makes it a real joy to play.
The original tuners work well and the domino rosette and Art Deco position markers are in great condition for the age. Amazingly it is crack free and in very condition with just the dings and scratches associated with a vintage instrument.
