GIBSON UB3 BANJO UKULELE
What a rare find, here is a beautiful vintage Gibson model UB3 banjo ukulele, the 'big' model!
Made by Gibson in the USA.
It is in very nice condition, considered one of the best vintage banjo ukes and are highly sought after.
The craftmanship and quality are evident as soon as you pick it up.
It has the pearl inlay and fingerboard binding of higher end models. Notice the logo. The tuners are original and work well.
The string action is easy and playable all the way up the neck. The frets are smooth and are not rough on the ends.
Fingerboard is Rosewood with 7 inlays. The calf skin head is in good quality.
The instrument is set-up by Eddie Utley (who also refurbished the head).
This comes with a good quality Phil Cartwright hard case.
