Very pleased with the kitschness of it all.

Beautiful as usual pete. Sorry if this is a silly question, but how do you bind with MOP on the curves? I understand how you do it with purfling, but that has a border.

That's Mother of Toilet seat or more accurately, faux MOP cellulose binding. Luthier in-joke :)

I like it Pete! Red would be killer too.

I've used up my green and am going to buy some more - was lusting after their red. Good advice as usual Chuck. Got the MOT on the headstock - looks very trashy and I love it :)

Makes me want to buy a bottle of cheap whiskey and listen to some country western music.

There is something about the combination of reso and MOTS that always looks better then it should. Nice

Delightfully tacky. I'm kinda worried that I may use that stuff someday

yes, super sweet! I love the MOT. Red would also be cool, it would change the style of bling though, make it a bit sassier..

...jeesh, I was expecting to see a disco ball. Possibly you guys are Amish?

That's funny but I know what you mean. I think I may be strong enough to avoid the temptation. Some day I'd like to build some way out bizarro stuff under a different name.

I actually really like that Pete. I do feel, however, that the Uke body should be Avocado*





















* May be meaningless to anyone except English people who remember the early 80's

Also, if you're thinking about trying a Chuck Moore style neck inlay on that Uke, might I suggest a 1980's style English Bathroom Hula Girl:

You Brits appear to be 10 years behind the Yank trends...Avocado and doll toilet paper cozies are hallmarks of the fashion disaster that was the United States in the 1970s...

Don't look now but that trend has been back "in" for the last 10 years. Pete is cutting edge.

This thread has got that Confederate Railroad song "Trashy Women" now playing in my head.

The MOT looks great on that resonator!
