i thought it might be fun to start a thread where people can post pictures of ukulele' s they've seen- be them colourful, super expensive, or whatever.

so to start:

Yoshimura and Bosko show off the whole "lighting" uke here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mckizACVyM)(thanks for the heads up, brad, that is crazyawesome!).

These are Swagerty ukes:

Apparently, you could use the top of the head to stab things in the sand or something? That's what I read, anyway.

Gus of GUGUG plays one here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjY1mnGb9iA), so you can get a feel for the size.

Oh, and I almost forgot Duane Heilman's stuff (Black Bear (http://www.blackbearukuleles.net/index.html)), with my favorites being:

The "Harpulele":

Russ makes awesome instruments. He's a member here and I got a custom sopranino cigar box uke from him recently :-)

This flying V uke is not TOO unusual, and it was a cheapie (my first) but I got Jake to autograph it:

I saw the Spam uke in a shop in Waikiki in 2000. I didn't play at the time but since I have taken up the uke I have tried tracking one down to no avail. I do remember it was priced ridiculously... then again it was Waikiki!

How about a Duckulele?

Assuming the tone is more 'quack' and less 'bark'?
