Couple of Ukes Underway

Here's 2 necks that I'm making good progress on for a pair of Ukes.  In the pic, you'll see a Maple Neck and Padauk Fretboard, as well as an Oak Neck with Walnut Skunk-stripe and a Bobinga Fretboard.

Pretty cool.

Cigar Box Guitar - 4 String Rocky Patel Aged 12 Years

Starting the New Year with a Black Rocky Patel.  It has an Oak Neck and a Bobinga Fretboard.  The hard tail has brass inserts and a strap button.  Has a Piezo pickup inside, so can be played acoustically, or plugged into an amp.  Will go on Sale in a few weeks

Figured Oak Necks

I took some Flatsawn Oak, cut it down the middle, glued it in a Quartersawn configuration.  I'm anxious to see how these turn out.  You can already see the Quartersawn Figuring in the grain!  It will also make for a stronger neck with the grain running up and down.

Great Box - Soon to be a 4 String Guitar

Pair of Ukes in the Works

Two Tenor Ukes that are well underway.  Everything is just a dry fit for now.  Lots of sanding coming up.
