That was the design brief.

This is what I came up with - English sycamore back/sides, German spruce top, ebony fretboard, bridge, head veneer. The lady I built this uke for has some amazing mermaid & pirate tattoos, linked together with patterns of stars & dots, so I went for a random scatter of MOP and abalone stars and dots on the ebony.

Beautiful uke! The stars and dots "thrown" up the fingerboard are inspired! Very classy!

Nice looking uke. Maybe it would seem more piratey with some grog
