Tenor scale, 11 inch body diameter.
The strings are attached to pins on the bottom of the body.
Sorry I left out these important details.

Not trying to troll, but how can this be considered a banjo uke with a wood top? Yeah, I see the banjo style bridge, but how does it sound?

You probably can't change it now, but this design is most often referred to as a "camp style" uke.

The builder calls it a Banjo Uke. The sound is somewhere between a uke and a banjo.
Here is a very quick sound sample (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/q932ihyp4bt2ba0/AACzfR3IIyTXfMAykj1iucqda?dl=0).

I found a couple Youtube videos of Terry's banjo style instrument with wood tops and they sound very nice to my ears.

I see what you mean. Huh. Who'd have thunk it?
