Clyde Eoff Ukulele Shovel "The Missourians"


​ "The Missourians" performing in Santa Monica California in 1929 Clyde is in the center playing a home made Hawaiian steel guitar shovel while wife Louise does hula hands, note the shovel ukulele back right. 

​This one of a kind ukulele shovel was made by Clyde Eoff Dawson in the 1920's it is not a toy it is actually a solid good playing that does not sound that bad. Clyde Eoff Dawson was a member of "The Missourians" his group "The Missourians" played professionally in the mid-western states for many years in the 1930's. Clyde owned two Knutsen ukuleles and when he made this ukulele either he copied the bridge design of his tenor Knutsen or Chrisopher gave him the bridge to use on his shovel ukulele, note GDBE tuning is written on the headstock next to tuners.
