I have a vintage 1950's (I think) uke made by "K & K Musical Instrument Co, Manhattan NY". Does anyone know anything about this maker? The interewebs has turned up nothing for me, sadly.

Lardy has some info:

"K and K Musical Instrument Co.
This is a bit of a mystery brand? They were based in New York and I have read that they made musical instruments, I have also been told this is not true and they were only ever a distributor and it is the case all the Ukuleles I have seen from them have been ones they distributed, (and possibly imported), from other makers. For example I have been told that in 1962 they sold 50 Baritones made by Favilla but branded K and K. On the Baritone's logo, (and this is another example of the widely branded and distributed Baritone of the 50's and 60's) there is a postal address of New York 3 (thus dating it to before 1963 and ZIP codes). The Sopranos Just have the logo on, (but look like 1950's/60's far eastern manufacture). I believe the firm is no longer in business but possibly lasted into the 21st century?"
