Vintage Werco Blue Sparkle Banjo Ukulele $199 + $35 SHIPPING/Insurance (US mainland only)
Reference No. 2432

Made in the U.S.A., ca. 1960. This is an awesome banjo ukulele, and it even has a resonator! This is soprano scale, with G C E A tuning. Overall length is 21", and the plastic banjo head is approximately 7-3/16".

Super nice instrument! Plays easily and with low string height. Small neck shim to give this the proper neck angle for low action. Everything appears to be original except for the strings and bridge. This is not a toy, but a real, playing instrument. Neck is made from solid metal. The frets, nut and "inlays" are all made from one piece of cast and plated metal. Resonator and tailpiece are metal. Except for the neck, the metal parts do show some light wear and/or rust. No major pitting or structural damage.

Does not include case or any accessories.

Used Danville Resonator Guitar (dobro) w/gigbag $125 + $50 SHIPPING/Insurance (US mainland only)
Reference No. DR1

If you are wanting to learn the dobro but don't want to spend a lot of money, we've got the perfect starter instrument for you! This used Danville resonator guitar is a roundneck that has a nut extension. Roundneck resonator guitars are generally used for playing the blues. They are played in the normal position of a guitar, and the player can tune and fret the instrument like a guitar, and also use a finger slide on it. Since this has the nut extension added, it is tuned and can be played like a square neck resonator guitar (bluegrass dobro). This means you would tune it to G B D G B D and play it flat on your lap with a solid slide.

This instrument is in excellent, used condition. There are a few dents, dings and scratches overall, but nothing that really stands out. The nut extension is slightly wider than the fingerboard, but since this will be played with a solid slide, it will not affect the playability at all. If you remove the nut extension, the regular nut is unharmed underneath and it can be tuned and played like a regular guitar.

Includes a used gigbag.

Here is a great sounding instrument to get you heard playing bluegrass dobro! The Black Lightening Regal has the desired Quarterman cone, which is louder in volume and produces a great tone quality!

Does not include case or accessories.

Used Handmade Dulcimer $75 + $35 SHIPPING/Insurance (US mainland only)
Reference No. D1

This handmade dulcimer is just what you need to get started. No name, date or markings of any kind as to maker or other information.

Nice, solid instrument. Looking inside, I see three braces. For some reason, there is a large piece of masking tape over each brace. The braces are glued into place correctly and are solid, so I have no idea why the masking tape was left inside. I believe this has a pine top and mahogany everything else. Nut is bone, and the saddle is maple. The top and back overlap the sides by about 1/8". It is not entirely even all the way around, and there is some glue that is visible. Holds tune, plays good and has a nice sound.

Does not include case or accessories.

Used Handmade Dulcimer $60 + $35 SHIPPING/Insurance (US mainland only)
Reference No. D2

Handmade walnut dulcimer. There are some initials, a date (1974) and #1 scratched into the back of the instrument. See Pic 5.

This instrument is made from walnut, with a bone nut and saddle. There is discoloration in the wood stain overall. See Pic 9 for an example. The veneer on the end was either never glued on or came unglued. See Pic 8. This is cosmetic in nature. The parts of the sides that have been bent into a half-circle are thin and fragile. There are several glued cracks here. There is a gap where the peghead is attached to the body of the instrument. See Pic 4. There is a slight warp in the back in one area. See Pic 7. This dulcimer holds tune, plays good and has a nice sound.

Does not include case or accessories.

Wallhanger Dulcimer $25 + $35 SHIPPING/Insurance (US mainland only)
Reference No. D3

This dulcimer is NOT playable. It looks playable, but would only be good as wall art. It is handmade from solid mahogany. There are no dates, names or other markings as to maker or year. One of the side seams is partially unglued. I did not bother to reglue this since it is not playable. This would be easy to do, as all the pieces match up and nothing is warped there.

Does not include case or accessories.
