Gibson Trap Door Banjo Uke, Ukulele, Ukelele UB



This is a beautiful old Banjo-Uke with Gibson serial number 8087-50.  It has a 9 inch head and from the bottom of the nut to fret 12 it measures 6 7/8 inches.  The entire fingerboard measures 9 1/8 inches.  The resonator is hinged and is in good working order, popping open when the latch is released.  It is all original with the exception of the skin head which was replaced last year and one bracket/nut set that does not match the rest.  There are a very few dings or scratches and the expected amount of corrosion to the nickle plating, but, all in all, in very good original condition. This instrument may be strung with steel or gut strings (it has steel on it now) but I believe it carried gut strings for most of its life – the finish is worn off the back but there is no wear to the frets.  With the steel strings it has a very loud and brassy sound but it would sound great with gut strings, too.  George Gruhn says that these were made between 1924 and 1925 and although Gibson cataloged them as ukes they are sometimes tuned as mandolins.  There's more info if you Google:
