Well darn it... I was getting close to pulling the trigger on "Uke Can Change the World" Flea, but I noticed today that they have some new graphics on the Fluke (http://www.fleamarketmusic.com/store/scripts/prodList.asp?idCategory=5). I'm really digging the tie dye :D

Let's see some :cool: Flukes!

There are some pics of flukes in the Fluke Foundation (social group) on UU.

I have a hibiscus red tenor with plastic fretboard and passive pickup. Love that thing. Nothing special about it, but I did throw an apple sticker on it!

I decorated mine with some water-sldie decals to give it an agave theme:

I have seen a picture of your Fluke before Ian. Where did you get the decals? My fluke definitely needs some decoration.

Your agaves remind me of baby pineapples having a bad hair day but in a good way. :D

You know what would be cool? If the Fluke depicted on the Russ Buss uke was, itself, a Russ Buss uke... :D

I'm pretty much set on getting a tenor Fluke this year. The hard part is deciding what pattern to get. I like tiki mug, surf, tie-dye, and all the solid colors (which would be fun to decorate myself).

Picked up a tie-dye Fluke concert during my lunch break at McCabe's in Santa Monica. It's a cool store, and the employee who I worked with (Nancy) was really helpful. I was down to just my KoAloha tenor and missed having something that I could take to the beach or for camping. I like how this finish is a little darker and more subdued than the ones I saw online.

It was about 100 degrees today so I didn't want to leave it in the car so I brought it up to the ffice with me and played for people who stopped by my desk. Great stress reliever!

Yeah - the resemblance is curious. The Spanish name for agave heads is piņa, or pineapple... so I combine the best of two worlds - Hawaii and Tequila.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 'island pattern' Fluke...the one with the purple flowers. One was up for sale not to long ago - I had an opportunity to buy it - and had to PASS (due to my non-existent UAS funds *shakes fist in air*)

...One day I will find you again, sweet sweet Island pattern! :love:

I also saw the "Mookulele" Fluke for the first time today, with the cow spots - TOO CUTE!

How much do these generally run? I've been very good with my UAS since I fought off baritones but this... these are special.

That Russ Buss uke is amazing, how did you get that on there? It's not a sticker is it?

The tie-dye is pretty neat! I hope someone with a tenor tie-dye Fluke hates it so I can get a sweet deal on one.

Although the hibiscus red tenor on FMM's marketplace for $150 seems like a decent enough deal, too. Would be fun to paint...

it was a gift from Deach, artwork by Heather (dinkadink). the Fluke factory did the printing. it's like the build-a-bear workshop, but with less bears.

That's a West African adinkra symbol, Gye Nyame. It means "except God," which is a confession of the supremacy or omnipotence of God - as in "I fear none except God," or "none will see the beginning and end of creation except God."

Mine is a vinyl sticker cutout made by my brother.
