Wizard Banjo-Ukulele, ca. 1930 (used)

Regular price $ 325.00

 

Well made and well kept banjo-uke bearing the Wizard label, a brand owned by distributor C. Bruno & Son of New York, who contracted with various makers. The headstock pattern on this suggests Gretsch. Others with identical trim sport the "portholes" found on Gretsch Clarophone rims.

All maple construction with birds-eye veneer, open back 8-inch rim, 16 flat hooks, L-shoes, heavy grooved tension hoop, Bacon-style nuts, all nickel plating in excellent condition. High-quality Grover replacement friction pegs of period, clean calfskin head in good shape. New bridge and bone nut.

Cleaned, polished, professionally set up with La Bella strings. Perfect action. 60-day guarantee from luthier-owner. Cosmetically as is. Solid, attractive instrument with strong tone. No case.
