    I emailed them with a couple of questions, and they seem to be very accommodating. I'm sure they could print a guitar design for a uke. They even do custom designs - just like Magic Fluke. You could send a graphic to Magic Fluke for the top of the uke and use the same image for the fretboard.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    After someone pointed out a nice Cordoba all-bamboo uke on Reverb, I ordered that. It must be coming by horseback. If it arrives on time from CA, it will have taken fifteen days to get here.

    The Fluke has the standard plastic fretboard, and I was going to see if I could make a wooden one for it, but seeing those Neck Illusions has me wondering if using one of them would a better idea - cheaper, faster, and changeable.

    You should go with the illusions. You can always decide to change the fretboard later if the illusions don,'t do the trick.

    LOL. I waited 2 years for my KLOS tenor uke to be delivered. I just ordered an electric uke from Brian Fanner in South Africa. I wonder how long that will take! But, of course, I do have 4 ukes to keep me happy until it arrives!

    I ordered a Jake Blue about a week ago, now I feel even worse. I gotta look at Jake Blue's review and pictures every few hours to scratch my itch. AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, UAS maks me satisfied and unsatisfied at the same time.
    I'm a Ukulele newbie, one day I'll make my Ukuleles proud.

    Yes, that's a definite possibility. But - I have to decide which Illusion to get.

    Wow! I ordered a Klos when it was an Indigogo offering, and that took four months to arrive. The Indiegogo Peanut made me wait four months. I waited about the same length of time when Duke 10 was getting started, and now I'm waiting two months for another uke. Two years is too much.

    The uke that started this thread took fifteen days to travel from CA to NY, and it cost the seller $5.30 to ship it. I just weighed and measured the box, and it would have cost about $20 for three day Priority shipping, a price I would gladly have paid.

    Maybe order a design uncut, and trim it out to fit your uke's fretboard?

    Pick the one that will make you most happy.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    The company seems eager to work with customers, so if I can pick one that I like, I'll give them the dimensions and they'll cut it to fit. I know that cutting all those pieces myself would not work. One hitch, though. This is for a Flea or Fluke with a plastic fretboard, so the frets are black. I don't know how they'll show up unless I paint them.

    What are they? I mean, are they vinyl with some adhesive backing? If so, it sounds like that contact paper that you line drawers with.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.
