Would appreciate your help in identifying the maker of the attached Banjo Uke.
No Maker's Mark.
21 inches LOA.
7 inch head.
12 Bracket Hooks/Nuts. No shoes.
No Neck Stabilizer Hardware or Screw Through Rim Into Heel.
Thanks for helping.
Looks like the Maxitone line that was sold through Bruno. No idea who made them, but it was probably someone local to NYC.
Gumby Banjo uke
The original tailpieces had the name U-King stamped on them. And like most of the instrument brands marketed to students, they are really hard to track down the specific manufacturer.
According to Lardy's ukulele database, Maxitone was made by MISCo. (Musical Instrument Specialties co.),
of Elkhart Indiana. Check out this database under Richter, MISCo.

Thanks for helping. Yep, looks like a Maxitone but without the "Maxitone" tag.
