This is a nearly perfect 1925 Lange Solo Banjo Uke. Lange was the maker of Paramount, Orpheum and others. This is possibly the best banjo uke ever! Beautifully made with much subtlety and finesse and in immaculate, unplayed original condition with a perfect original hard shell case. it looks un-played since new and is LOUD with excellent tone-It is comparable to, if not surpasses a Gibson UB 4 uke.
