About The Banjolele (from Wikipedia):
The banjolele (brand name; sometimes banjo ukulele or banjo uke) is a four-stringed musical instrument with a small banjo-type
body and a fretted ukulele neck. ''Banjolele,'' sometimes also spelled
''banjelele'' or ''banjulele'' is a generic nickname given to the
instrument, which was derived from the 'banjulele-banjo,' introduced by
Alvin D. Keech in 1917.
The instrument achieved its greatest popularity in the 1920s and
'30s, and combines the small scale, tuning, and playing style of an
ukulele with the construction and distinctive tone of a banjo, hence
Banjo ukuleles parallel banjo construction, on a smaller scale, in
terms of overall construction. They are almost always fretted. Most are
built of wood with metal accoutrements, although the mid-century
''Dixie'' brand featured banjoleles made from solid metal.
