I've been finding a bunch of cool pictures of unique and exotic ukuleles. I have decided to post a new uke picture each week. This week's uke is the death ukulele (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-delZfpaeLpc/TqMVFAMC6pI/AAAAAAAABkM/_RA7grqdyYY/s1600/dead+uke.jpg).

Thanks for posting! That's a Dave Talsma (http://davetalsma.com/)ukulele. It and another Talsma ukulele were the October 2011 ukuleles in UU member Lori's memorable 2011 Ukulele Calendar (http://www.cafepress.com/+ukulele_calendar_2011,487344151#).
