Hello everyone at the hangout. I just purchased a 1924 Gibson UB2 and was wondering if anyone could help me locate some original parts and a case. The main piece I am looking for is a tail piece also need one tension hook.

Found the tail piece and bridge so just looking for a hook.
Thanx

Robert,

Post a picture of the parts you need. Not every UB-2 is exactly the same. There were slight variations of the hardware.

The case is easy. Partnering with Kevin Enoch, I had cases manufactured for UB-2 banjo ukes. Using the Enoch Banjo Uke case as a starting point, I was able to get a batch of cases manufactured to accommodate the added depth of the UB-2 with the resonator. Cost is $115 and what ever the shipping to Kitchnener costs.

I have one of these cases for my UB2 and I have to say that having seen and tried many others this one is hands down the best !

I have tried to get more of these cases to the UK, but shipping for one is fairly expensive. Sending 4 brings the cost per case to an almost reasonable price, but I have to find four folks in the same town that need one.
