Even though I LOVE Baris, this one is bit too psychedelic for me:) Wonder how it sounds with all that decoration sealing the wood vibrations? Interesting though. Lozark

It's like it wants to be a blinged out Pohaku uke, only not as stylish, and not sounding so good...

If the artist had stopped about halfway through... I really like the sides and the faux rosette, even the neck "inlay" might have worked if there had been some thought to making it work better so as to make proper markers, the rest had been left off, and some other treatment done on the parlour style top bout.

Nice catch and release.

Me too and that you enjoy it immensely, even if you end up hanging it on the wall. :cool: Now personally I could get into a really nice steampunk uke.

Not so much a player as a work of art, eh?

God, why do I keep picking instruments to play that have "novelty" value? Lol.

Man... that thing is... something.

:agree: Good advice, especially when you can get others to do it! He he he!

I don't think you needed to say anything. It speaks volumes all by itself.

I actually think it's pretty cool. I would, however, remove the silver shell, or add some more. By itself, it's what we call in the Art World an "isolated motif."
