The Gibson Ukulele Banjo
Gibson Ukulele Banjo is endowed with the same high standards of quality made famous by the
Gibson 'Mastertone' instruments and is offered in a range of models and prices to suit
Power and beauty of tone - accuracy- and dependability almost unbelievable in such an instrument'.
So said the catalogue of the pre-thirties and it is still true today although the prices have escalated a little!
Gibson made five styles of Ukulele Banjo :-
Style UB-1 More of a fun instrument with only a six inch rim but packing a powerful punch for a small instrument.
Style UB-3 Some confusion here - See page from catalogue below, the instrument has a flat back but on the right the UB-3 shown has a flange resonator fitted.
Style UB-4 Again below is when the UB-4 had just been released
Style UB-5 The gold plated version of the UB-4 - only $55 in 1930 - now valued at $5000 - wow!!
