Weymann Style 225 Banjo Ukulele , c. 1925

Weymann Style 225 Model Banjo Ukulele, c. 1925, made in Philadelphia, natural varnish finish, maple neck and rim, ebony fingerboard.
Overall length is 23 3/4 in. (60.3 cm.), 7 in. (17.8 cm.) diameter head, and 2 1/4 in. (5.7 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 15 in. (381 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.). Nice playing condition-original except for two of the brackets and nuts and a newer bone string nut. There are some old splits in the rosewood veneer on the headstock face, and a couple of very small delamination openings on the bottom of the rim. The plating on the hooks, nuts and some other hardware is still fairly shiny with a few minor corrosion spots. Average light finish wear overall, and the finish has darkened somewhat over time with a few small areas of staining and/or flaking. The long-necked Style 225 is a wonderful, very unusual (and loud!) little instrument, beautifully made and built much heavier than technically required for gut strings -this would be an excellent choice for steel stringing, if desired. This is a well-preserved example that plays and sounds fantastic. Overall Very Good + Condition.
