I have just bought what appears to be a Style 1 1960s Ukulele. It has "Uke 1" stamped on the inside of the sondhole.

The problem I've had is that it looks more like a style 2 (see Pic)

Elvis played a uke in the film "Blue Hawaii" 1961 but as the top of the uke had its logo blacked out and the fretboard markings are different I can't identify it.

Does anyone know if Gibson produced this as a sort of Elvis tribute uke.

I've looked on the internet and the only Style 1s that I've seen didn't have the white binding of the style 2

Any information gratefully accepted

Many thanks

Steve

Hi Steve. the link doesn't work for me, which could explain the lack of responses.
