Hey everyone. I am working on a new video and for one of the scenes there is a beat up Ukulele case with a nice ukulele in it. instead of looking all over for an already beat up hard case or spending a lot of money on one that i'm going to destroy, I decided to make one out of cardboard so it looks "ghetto" tell me what you guys think about it.

Am I weird? Because I actually like it! What would make it even cooler is to line the ourside with duct tape and put pretty padding inside. And you might be onto something ;)

LOL
It's an interesting case, but IMO it does not look "beat up".

amen to the Duct Tape and Padding... and might I suggest a rope handle?

Hi Nickman2,

Good job on the case. I'm still using the packing box for my
Makala MK-C, gotta get crafty.

It's better than a gigbag;)

Cheers.

hey guys. I'm really glad you like the case design. instead of making it look beat up I decided to add some of my custom artwork to it. let me know what you guys think.

I like the watermelon on it.

And yes, I have used the regular cardboard box they've came in for storage before. Works very well...and helps maintain resale value as an LNIB instrument.

Yeah, $0.29 beats the heck outta $799.99! I would protect that graphic with some fine 3M Ultra Clear Packing Tape, though. Don't wanna skrimp there! Nice job.
