UGH VINTAGE UKULELE DISPLAY




















































































































































































































































































































































































































Aloha,
These are the vintage ukuleles that were exhibited at the UGH Exhibition last week at the Blaisdell Center. These instruments are all at least 50 years old, and most are much older. They are all in nice condition, some of them are in excellent condition. This collection would be extremely difficult to put together nowadays. There are also a couple of machetes in there. These were the precursors to the ukulele. Build by original immigrants from Maderia off of the coast of Portugal, these 5 string concert-tenor sized instruments are very, very rare. Thanks to everyone that participated in the event for making it such a fun and positive experience. This collection of vintage ukuleles was the cherry on top.
Mahalo,
Tyler
