1950s Harmony Baritone Ukulele

How many more of these can I work on? I feel like this model is never-ending! I see at least a few each year. Most are not as nice as this early-'50s style one, though. These earlier ones have thinner body wood, lighter bracing, and thinner/faster necks. Of course... they sound better because of that.

Per standard '50s features it's got a solid mahogany body throughout and a mahogany neck. The board and bridge are rosewood and the nut and saddle are bone. It's original and crack-free, too, save one tiny hairline (repaired) below the bridge on the top. The bridge has some rolled-over edges on its foot from a sloppy old bridge repair (probably from sanding) but it's now on there good and tight.

I decided to string this one up with "all plain" flurocarbon (the low G D'Addario tenor uke set, EJ99TLG) in standard DGBE tuning and it sounds great with these -- though a lighter attack helps keep the floppier low strings sounding nice. It'll work with "standard" two-wound, two-plain just fine, too.

Repairs included: neck reset, bridge reglue, fret level/dress, side dots install, cleaning, setup.
