Hey, UU! I have seen all kinds of really unique ukuleles all over the place and was wondering if you guys know of any. They could be unique in shape, color, wood, size, or anything like that.

Thanks, Cheers

I've seen some interesting things on Etsy. But who knows how well built they are as a musical instrument.

The RISA uke solid looks pretty unique to me :) (I've ordered the concert scale) .

I've made three ukuleles from manzanita and cypress, I'm pretty sure they are the only three in the world. :)

Here's a link to a thread I posted about my #2.

I was very intrigued by this model when I first saw a picture of it. I have yet to see on in real life but I would love to try one some day!

Not too unique, but I built a "Saddle Bag Uke" last year for my own personal motorcycle camping purposes. Fits right in my saddle bag with all my other camping gear, and while not too loud, it's good enough for me... until I finish the second model.

Wow! Kinda hard to imagine a hog riding uke player... very cool on both counts!
