In Britain we have a national treasure - The Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain. They are a high class cabaret outfit that do not play their own stuff but are just the business when it comes to performance art and interpreting popular music for the ukulele. I make ukulele for several of the members of this outfit including Peter Brooke-Turner (the very tall one who sings 'Teen Spirit'). He recently left the first one I made him 15 years ago in Berlin airport and this is the replacement - you can give Hester back her Nutalele now Pete ;)

And yes, it is supposed to sound like that - a small guitar...

Looks gorgeous, sounds gorgeous. Amazing group that deserves the best. It looks like they got it!

Just out of curiosity (and a deep and abiding interest!) how much would a ukulele like that go for, and would it be possible to get a pickup installed?
