Used Paul F. Summers soprano ukulele
This is a Paul F Summers Famous Waikiki uke made in Honolulu back in the day. It's a fancy soprano made with attractive curly Koa wood and rope binding on the top. Paul F. Summers and his brother Harold were Music Teacher in Honolulu Hawaii. He contracted out with high quality Ukulele Luthiers to build Ukulele's for his company. Sam Chang who was formally employed with the Kanaka Ukulele company, was the builder of many of the Summers Ukulele's. He is know for building the "Famous Waikiki" Ukulele's.  Has the OSSC in poor condition. This is a circa 1920 (give or take 5 years) Paul F Summers "Famous Waikiki Ukulele" in excellent all-original condition (No cracks/signs of major repair work) w/chipboard case. Most likely, this was made by ex Kamaka builder, Sam Chang, who built a lot of ukes for the Summers brothers (Paul & Harold) who sold them out of the Royal Hawaiian & Moana hotels. This is a fancy soprano model made of nicely figured koa with matching rope-style purfling and rosette. It is missing the inside label but has the "TABU" stamp on the back of the headstock that indicates that it was made in Hawaii between approximately 1915-1925 or so.  Great sounding piece!
