Maxitone Bruno Banjo Ukulele

This is the instrument that I am looking forward to playing, it is just about there, has a resonator, tail piece, all it needs is strings and a bridge. I am ordering them tonight, when I get them in I will post some audio. I can't wait, I have been eye Banjo Ukes on ebay, since I found out they existed. Can't wait to play this one. I hope it ends up sounding decent.

Neat! Are we going to see this one showing up at a Sunday service any time soon ;)

You betcha, I just ordered strings and a bridge, so hopefully in a few days I can start practicing with it, chomping at the bit.

Hi Greg,
I came across your blog while looking for info on a similar banjo uke. Mine apears to be missing the resonator, nut and bridge. I make guitars, so fashioning the later two items is no problem, but I was curious as to where you picked up yours? Also, were you able to find a source for original parts, etc? I would love to hear/see more of your project!
