Vintage Cliff Edwards Resonator Tenortrope Deluxe Model With Case For Sale

Vintage Cliff Edwards Resonator  Tenortrope Deluxe Model With Case

Up for consideration is a late 20's / early 30's Cliff Edwards TENORTROPE. It was made by the DOBRO company and as it was introduced at the start of the Great Depression it promptly flopped. Not too many were produced.  As you might know Cliff Edwards was better known as Ukulele Ike and was the voice of Jiminey Cricket. He sang the song, When You Wish Upon a Star, in the Pinocchio Movie. This song later became the theme song for the Walt Disney TV Show.  Before he became associated with the Disney Studios Cliff appeared in many movies and had much success recording records over his long career.  The Tenortrope is a rare instrument that Cliff probably tuned like a ukulele.  I have seen a few TENORTROP'S over the years and they were made of mahogany. This is the Deluxe Version made of Walnut with an ebony fingerboard. This one plays great. The neck is straight with only minor fret wear. The string action is low and easy to play with no fretting out. The scale is 21 1/2 inches. As you can see in the pictures the headstock had two extra tuners at one time to double 2 of the strings. The extra tuners have been removed and the holes plugged. The original string nut was replaced at that time. This is a very cool instrument. It can be tuned as a Ukulele, Tenor Guitar or as a plectrum banjo. It comes with the original hard case. Buyer to pay $45.00 dollars shipping in the lower 48 states. I can ship international to some countries so as before offerding.

I have had a couple of people ask if I could post a sound file of the tenortrope so I have posted a short clip on youtube. If you go to youtube and enter,.......  cliff edwards tenortrope  ......... in the search bar you should find the clip.
