"Dick Barrie Bands" Banjo Uke

Here is a re-badged GH & Sons Melody uke.

This was quite common among instrument makers, especially GH &S.

Takes nothing away from the uke though. in fact i'd say this is an upgraded model.
notice the sleeve guard, and ornamental fret markers. also fitted with tone ring.
a very well made uke that is great to play. has a real BU sound too. ideal for a bit of Formby!

Now on its way back to owner. A family treasure with great history, well worth restoring.
