I just finished another great day at the 2nd Lone Star Uke Fest, and I purchased a Spanky banjo uke. Below are some pics. The neck, pot, and resonator are made of mesquite, and the rose inlay is holly. Not only is it beautiful, but it is heavy and loud. If you like banjo ukes, this one is great. (But banjo ukes are an acquired taste.)

I'm selling my Waverly Street banjo uke over at the marketplace to help pay for this one.

It might be a while before I can justify buying a banjolele, but when I do, I hope it's even half as beautiful as this one.
That's an incredible instrument. Thanks for sharing.

You'd better be ready to get naked to play that thing....it would be a crime against Nature to scratch that resonator....
