After I saw the first one you made, I was blown away and wanted to take a stab at making my own, but hadn't been able to find a scrap violin for a good price. Any chance I could buy one off you? :O

If you are going to make another violinuke - I will put in my request now. Another way to raise some money for your adoption?

I think 'Violele' is probably the best name. It's also the easiest to say, as it doesn't sound as forced as something like 'Viokulele' or 'Viouke' would.

Anyway, that box of Violins is great - I've yet to take on a Uke project, partly because I'd hate to smash one up for parts. I don't think I could do it. I don't think I'd have as much of a moral dilemma with smashing a Violin, though, as I can't play them in their original form.

Alan, the last I knew, Mike at Mainland sold uke necks. Are those violins all full size? Some student instruments are 3/4 size....

I like the color of the one with the blue tape on the neck....wonder if it would handle concert scale length?

Let's just say it helps to be in the classical music biz. ;)

A couple of the bodies are student sized. I'd like to try some different sized necks on them, but will have to find a good supplier of cheap necks. I'll post pics and vids once I get the Violuke # 2 produced. :)

maybe someone in the builders/luthiers lounge can spare a few necks?
