Unique Tail Piece

The business end of this Uke is pretty unique.  I used ball ends from old guitar strings as string ferrules, and inlayed them in a small piece of Black Walnut, and tied it down with a few Brass Screws.  I like the clean look of this... may use it again in the future!

Business Cards

Not sure if Business Cards make you "legit", but a little Marketing seems like the right thing to do to take this to the next level ... slow and steady ...

2 New Ukes out of the Shop!

Finished up 2 Ukes this weekend (16" Tenor Scale).  They both have Piezo pickups inside for amplification.  The Dark Perdomo took a bit more work, because I routed the strings inside the Uke.  It still opens, which is pretty cool.  I'll let these sit for a week and let everything settle in.  Then I'll makes the final "tweaks", and post them on ETSY for Sale.

Off to North Carolina next weekend for a week of R&R on the Outer Banks (YEAH!), so it will be a few weeks before I post again.

I'm thinking of trying a metal Banjo type instrument if I can find the right pot, pan, or hubcap.  Should be interesting!

Stay tuned!
