Hi guys,

Hopefully I'm asking this in the correct section. I'm possibly looking for someone to build me a custom shaped ukulele (since I'm lousy at woodworking). Does anyone here work on commission? I want a custom shaped body, but not sure if it can be done. PM me if you are interested.

Thanks!

im not a luthier, but i am just curious what kind of shape you would want. a circle body would be sweet. (non banjo)

I've seen a pic of someone else's coffin uke, but don't know who made them. LOL, I'm sure now everyone is going to rush out and make one. :mad:
