Mahogany construction with 6 1/2 inch lower bout. Now here is an affordable ukulele ideal for those who want to try playing without spending a lot of money and then finding they don't like it. Kelvin sells these new for less than £15 or has the larger model which is oval shaped rather than guitar shaped for the same money. You can find his phone number in our music pages or send an email to bones@kwackers.com if you want more details.

Columbian Soprano Uke.
All plastic construction. Dated about 1955. I have kept this for over 50 years for sentimental reasons, thinking for the most of the time that it was a toy that my parents gave me when I wanted my first guitar for my birthday. However, recently having taken more interest in ukuleles it seems some were either totally plastic or had plastic fret boards. I have seen some plastic bodied ones advertised for as much as $200. I still wouldn't sell mine though. I just included it for interest sake.
