I recently received a 1915 Manuel Nunez ukulele that was manufactured for The Frank Ford company, made of Koa that was in dire need of restoration. It basically fell apart at the seams.
I disassembled the instrument starting at the back, then remade and reassembled some the braces and internal parts and added a new sound hole ring.
The owner of this instrument was a collector and an author on Martin ukuleles he was very pleased with the repair.
Thank you for reading. hope you found us enjoyable.
