    Default Show me your weird ukuleles

    Over the years I've seen ukuleles in a lot of strange shapes. I favor vintage electric guitar shapes but I've also seen Watermelons, the state of Michigan, a Corgi's face a snail, boat paddles...The possibilities are limitless.

    I've seen LP and tele shaped ukes, was wondering if there was a Rickenbacker uke, and Googled it..sure enough, there is! Hey, is that Capt. Obvious' brother?

    Not sure if it's weird enough but here's my Alida ES 330 copy along side my '62 Gibson ES 330. I changed out the tail piece from the 6 string sent with it to a proper four string one and had it professionally setup including moving the bridge a bit for proper intonation. If I decide not to sell it, I may install a couple hi end pickups.

    Does a boat paddle count as weird?

    I can't find any pictures except for 2 during building process so here is a video I made some time ago of my "Hamalele".

    I would designate mine as different rather then weird, a custom made mandolele to which I added the tailpiece and extra fret markers.
