I couldn't find Andy Griffith
How about Lucille Ball?
With the crest on the headstock, I'm guessing she is playing a Favilla

I used to watch the show regularly, I don't remember him playing the uke, but do remember him playing a four string banjo.
In the opening shot he is playing something, but it goes by so quick I can't tell what it is.

YEP thats what im trying to figure out was it a uke a tenor guitar or a tenor banjo?
i didn't play music when i saw this as a kid i just remember it was a small 4 stringed instrument
im trying to find out if in fact it was uke.

Andy's holding a very rare, early National Tricone Ukulele. The small body and triangular "T" coverplate gives it away.

I just read that supposedly Don Knotts introduced Andy Griffith to the Ukulele. I can't verify that though.

However, there is proof that Don Knotts did play the Ukulele and played it on "The Don Knotts Show" in the early 70's.

Cool thread here. I vaguely remember Andy Griffith rocking that banjo (or whatever it is) - my dad and Grandpa used to love that show.

thats awesome, did not know that ! its cool he plays a reso-uke a national resonator is probably the only instrument i would do anything for
because it has such a distinct sound and history behind it i love those things.

i thought i have seen him playing a tenor banjo but could be wrong and he also plays guitar also.
