It almost seems like a contradiction: "top of the line ukulele banjo." That's what it is though, the ultimate standard production ukulele item in the 1927 Gibson catalog. The UB-4 has figured walnut neck and resonator, and gold plate hardware. Unlike the style "4" mandolin banjo, tenor, plectrum or 5-string models, this ukulele banjo has no tonering.
