New Uke Commissioned

I'm working on a new Uke.  Enclosing a few pics.  This uses a Rocky Patel Box, Maple Neck, and Purple Heart Fretboard.  Much to do yet, but it's taking shape.

Vintage Bed Pan

What do you see in this pic ... a Vintage Bed Pan?

I see a one of a kind Guitar!

Call it a Vintage Bed Pan Resonator Guitar, a Crap-O-Caster, or a Barefoot Boogie Guitars Special Edition!

Not sure when I'll get to it, but it's on "The List"!

Twin Neck Ukulele - Almost Done!

What's better than a Cigar Box Uke?  A twin Necker!  I'm finishing this up for a customer.  I've been very busy lately.  This one is made from a Camacho box (still opens).  The Necks are made of Maple, and the Fret boards and accents are made from Purple Heart.  Imperial Style Tuners set off the headstocks.  The sound hole on this one was the perfect spot for my Barefoot Boogie Guitars signed Logo.  Sweet!

Twin Neck Ukulele

Have a customer in California that wants me to do something really different in a Uke.  So ... thought I'd make a Twin Neck Uke.  This is just a dry fit for now, but it will have both a Concert Uke and a Baritone Uke.  Looking forward to this one!
