Certified Instrument #8421 - from private stock at below cost prices. I am closing out my collection that I have kept for many years.
I, William E. Conrad, designer and builder of this instrument bearing my signature on the back center strip is genuine creation of my hands.
The instrument is "as-built" with no wear from usage.
20 detailed specifications of materials used in construction follow.
In addition, there follows the open vibrating string length of 440mm. Spacing of the frets was mathimatically calculated from the leading edge of the nut to the bridge bone, and is shown for 20 frets. The instrument was made in 1984, and is the 21st instrument finished in that year.
The instrument has 2 wound strings and tuned to Low-G, Key of C Martin Strings.
This ukulele comes complete with a Hohner Gig Bag at no charge.
William E. Conrad was a Master Luthier, and his seal is shown both the Certification Sheet and inside of the instrument.
Following the Certification page is a 3 page bibliography of the Master Luther... which is interesting and very helpful.
These fine Ukuleles used to sell for $600 and more.
