When did McNally come out with this (http://www.strumstick.com/html_pages/Ukelele%20Strumstick.htm) bad boy?

Anyone play one? I thought the strum stick was a little difficult to hold, I imagine this little thing is even harder. I think the strum stick had an almost banjo like tone...I wonder if this sounds similar...?

Craziness!

Aloha Skitzic,
I even seen a thinner one with just three strings....that must be even harder....

I wonder if this could be used as a lap steel.
Steel strings at a reasonable price.

I didn't think about the lap steel...hm. That's an interesting thought.

played one at NAMM this last June. It is really fun. Sounds ok for such a small body. The fact it has a pickup makes it really fun

I actually came across and played this very instrument in a local music shop. It was amazingly fun and sounded very much like a dulcimer ukulele.

I have one that has baritone (DGBE) tuning. Lots of fun to play, but a little awkward to hold.
I found this sound sample on YouTube.

I imagine you'd need a strap on this one to be able to play it at all. It'd be a good eye catcher that's for sure.
