Gibson Ub1 Banjo Ukulele Banjolele

Photo for Ad 124458

Asking $650, or make offer. This Baby Gibson UB1 banjo uke has amazing sound for such a small instrument. This is an excellent playing and sounding example of the legendary late 1920's Gibson banjolele. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer playable vintage Gibson banjo ukulele. New fluorocarbon Living Water Strings sit on a replacement bridge, and hold a great tune. Tuners, tail piece, banjo head, and Kalamazoo sticker appear original and intact. This was made for export, with Made in USA cleanly embossed on the back of the headstock. Metal work has not been cleaned up, but in good condition for a 90+ year old instrument. Missing one J-hook which does not effect the play and is easily to replace. Original coffin case is included in rough condition but complete, hardware in good condition. Currently shipping from South Africa, but will hand carry to US in June and available from there as well.
