What we have here is a very early (this one is lucky number 7) Palm Tree concert ukulele made by renowned luthier John Ramsey in Colorado Springs, Colorado. John was inspired by a trip he and his wife took to Hawaii, and started to build ukuleles designed after the classic ukes of the 1920's, 30's, and 40's. This has some wonderfully book-matched koa wood that shows a lot of nice flame pattern to it, and sounds well developed in its mid-range. It has some signs of playwear on there, namely some light pick marking on the bass and treble sides of the sound hole as well as a dark spot in headstock finish where a tuner was likely clipped on. This comes with a hard shell case.
