Samick in a Korean manufacturer founded in 1958. It started as a piano manufacturer but fairly quickly added guitars to the catalogue, with an American called Greg Bennett as the chief designer. In the beginning they just made Guitars, but over the years they have added Mandolins, Banjos, and in the 2000's Ukuleles to the range and branded them Samick Greg Bennett

In 2013 they stopped branding the Ukuleles, Mandolins and Banjos with the Greg Bennett name though they are still using it for Guitars, (Greg Bennett Website). They are still making Ukuleles though, its just that now why are only branded Samick. When they were making Samick Greg Bennett Ukuleles, (which interestingly were made in Indonesia), they only made Concerts in 3 different wood choices and a Baritone in the range. The new Samick range has a different oval sound hole and comes as Soprano Concert, Tenor and Baritone (though no wood choices). They all, old and new, have a distinctive headstock shape with the S logo on (And Greg Bennett on the Greg Bennett ones; obviously)

Samick also do OEM for a number of major US Guitar makers and in 2014 they resurrected the Silvertone brand name though so far only for Guitars
