Here is another of my latest fun projects, the ULO (oo-low) which stands for a Ukulele Like Object. These ukes are meant to be fun to play, have a unique look and have a good sound with excellent setup and playing action. This a pineapple shape soprano size, number 010. It has a 13 3/4" playing scale and a soprano size body. The body is constructed of a single piece of 3/4" pine, a quality one piece solid Western red cedar top plate and a 1/4" plywood back. The neck does have a 1/4" diameter steel truss rod for strength and stability. It has only 1 small top braces and a bridge patch. The bridge is the string through type and is made of mahogany with a ebony saddle and nut. The fingerboard is Koa, with standard uke frets, 14 to the body which offers easy playing and accurate intonation. There are plastic dot position markers at the 5,7,and 10th frets, white side dots included. The body thickness is 1 1/16", and the total length is 22 1/2". The finish is one coat of white sealer paint and one coat in Teal color. The tuners are Ping geared type and they work well. The strings are Worth brand. Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed. I believe its a lot of uke for the money. No case but I will double box for safe shipping. Made in the USA by D. Heilman of Black Bear Ukes. $20 shipping in the USA lower 48 states. Payment by money order, personal check or bank draft only, no Paypal. Email me if you need more information. Thanks for looking.

I'll echo what I posted on the ULO #9 thread - you won't find a better instrument for travel, car, front porch, recliner, bed... super fun, easy to play, and loud! Pretty color on this one.

Is there a sound sample of this somewhere?

This isn't a pineapple but it's one of his others. The uke is not in the video but this is it. Here's a pic of the same kitten giving it a hug.

This looks cool. I might be interested in getting one of these but it would be next year. My wife is from Yakima(!) and we are probably going to be there in April. I need to make a mental note to email you about this ULO early next year. I like the thin body small soprano pineapple idea/shape, and your ukes have a great reputation here.
