A. Stathopoulo Banjo Ukulele

  • Very Good Condition
  • Year: circa 1910s
  • No Case


Extremely early banjo ukulele built by Anastasios Stathopoulo, an immigrant from Smyrna (now Turkey, then Ottoman Empire) who established an instrument building house that later became NYC monolith Epiphone. The pot measures 8" in diameter with a rolled tonering and simple tailpiece; rounded hardware. The nine piece neck was made with mahogany and maple and has the maker's stamp on the heel's cap; 12-7/8" scale length extended board with tiny frets; violin like pegbox with sort of Embergher like face on top; currently tuned in fifths with a commanding tone.
