Hello, just got what I hope is my first Gibson Banjo Ukulele. It was said to be a 1927, with a replaced tail piece, new Gibson strings, and a new bridge. Extremely good condition, plays very well, no case. There is an interesting marking on the inside, it is signed and stamped by Myra Gallagher 1927. I realise signing old instruments was common, but the stamp has me wondering if there is any information to be found. Any inputs on the instrument also welcome, hoping to at least confirm it is a 1927 (or earlier) Gibson UB2. Regards, Scott

I have the banjolele at the Luthier to get a nice starting point on the setup, will be given to my wife next week for her birthday. Pretty excited to make this part of our family...
