Banjo Ukulele, most likely made by Slingerland , c. 1925

Banjo Ukulele, most likely made by Slingerland ,  c. 1925

Banjo Ukulele, most likely made by Slingerland, c. 1925, made in Chicago, natural finish, laminated maple neck and rim, original brown canvas soft shell case.
Overall length is 21 in. (53.3 cm.), 7 1/2 in. (19 cm.) diameter head, and 2 1/2 in. (6.4 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 13 in. (330 mm.). Width of nut is 1 5/16 in. (33 mm.).

This inexpensive but well-made unbranded banjo-uke likely dates to the early/mid-1920s and is almost certainly a product of Chicago's Slingerland factory. It shows some light wear overall but remains an eminently playable piece of Vo-De-O-Do history. Excellent - Condition.
