I have no idea about banjoleles at all. I got this impulsively last week. :cool:

Can you say me anything, please?

"Jedson" is shorthand for J.E. Dallas & Son, a British maker known for making the George Formby-branded banjo ukes (but whether Formby actually played a Dallas is subject to debate). Here's some info on their banjo-ukes:

Can't help with your original question but may I ask if anyone can advise as to where to look for pre-war banjo uke? I'm asking for a friend who is looking for one.

Based on the banjolele by Alvin D Keech, almost a Keech copy, looks to be in nice condition. Enjoy it!
