Just wanted to share my new Gourd Banjo Ukes. One is a tenor the other a concert. Both use Grover statite Friction tuners. The gourds are covered in goatskin. Both are very loud They are $250.00 + $20.00 shipping if you are interested or have questions e-mail: Barry@signandart.com
These are really fun if you play much George Formby.

Man I love those things.. I have to add one to my collection soon. Didn't you just buy this? Or are you the one that makes them? I love the wormwood veneer on that fist one.. The other one is cool too though..

BTW , the peghead overlay is Spalted Manchinga from Peru. This is very old wood that's been recut. Very cool in person.

I love it. I wish I was in a position now to get one, but it will be awhile before I can purchase one for my own collection. I have bought more than a dozen and a half ukes in the past 2 months. The bride is only SO understanding, lol.. But, one of those will be in my tool box before too long. I can feel it.. ;) Nice work..
