Have you ever seen a uke that you want so bad that you don't know what to do?
You feel an extreme desperate urge to get that uke?

Well I just had one of those moments with this uke

What are some ukes you've been desperately excited about?

Moore Bettah ukes (Cuz they just look jawdroppingly awesome)
Any types of decorated fretboard ukes.

that uke is nice. according to the captions at the bottom, it's a mahogany back and sides and a red cedar top. all together, the uke cost about $150 to make (the build-your-own uke set he bought was about $23). from the looks of the background, this guy does several instruments like that.

as for ukes that i just repeatedly look at because i absolutely want would be moore bettah ukes. i visit the page on occasion to see if he has any new pics. when i can afford one, i'm definitely having him build one.

being the uke was only $150 total, i think he used a regular under-saddle pickup and painted on the humbuckers. would be awesome, though ;)

I figure my dream uke should be here in about 7 weeks. I'm getting a MB. That should take care of any UAS I may have or will have. I've seen the sound hole for it. I am in absolute heaven.

Of course I will post pictures. I can't even imagine what else he'll do for the inlay.

Matt -- I hear you. Delayed gratification is what I'm calling it. I'll play it until I wear it out. Isn't that what I've heard you say?

Mini Ukulele

This is the smallest functioning ukulele that I make. I call it a Mini size. It has a sweet high pitched sound and is fun to play. This one features two layers of rope bindings and many extras.

* Spruce top
* Koa back, sides, neck, fingerboard and bridge
* Multi-layered rope bindings for the top and fingerboard inlays
* Special modified boxwood friction tuners
* Bone nut and saddle
* 9 1/4" playing scale
* Lacquer finish

Well I am getting a custom Tenor 6 string in about six weeks. I suspect I will eventually get a Moore Bettah when I am able to. I also want one of those all carbon fiber ukuleles just because I'm a Formula One fan, but I could live without one of those.
