Jake Wildwood || Un Cafe' Noir

I have been exploring Jake's Antebellum Instruments site for a few years now. He doe an amazing job of mendin' & fixin' vintage instruments and taking wonderful photographs to be shared.

"I simply had to make a cut for you all on this baritone uke before it hits the rack and finds a new home. This is a c.1960s Japanese-built all-solid baritone under the "Carmencita" brand. Back and sides and neck of somewhat flamed Japanese maple, nice spruce top, and checker binding around the soundhole and top. It's sort of a typical import baritone from the time with the exception of the nice solid woods... and the tone... oh my. This thing projects very well and sounds like a decent quality classical guitar."
