This company was located at 1652 N. Throop St., Chicago, Illinois 60622. Werco's banjo uke has an aluminum neck and hard maple shell. The rim is painted with a bright metallic blue metalflake, giving it a striking appearance.The neck is identical to the "Dixie" banjo ukes, (one of which is pictured below the Werco) suggesting that either they were made by the same company, or Werco purchased another company and/or its equipment. The back of the Werco peghead reads "Werco Made In U.S.A." while on the Dixie it says "Patent Pending Made In U.S.A."
