    Yeah, I can see the rib cage image, but for me, even more so, the pattern on the top kinda reminds me of the underbelly of a horse-shoe crab.

    Or something ominous out of a horror film as the vision of the last thing one might see just before a giant insect attaches to your face and via an elongated organ, deposits eggs inside you, like in the "Aliens" movie franchise.

    This one is a hard "no" for me.

    EDIT: added this image, which is the one I was referring to:

    The first thing I saw in it was the tree of life, with branches above, the bridge as the ground, and roots below. Now I can't unsee the ribcage. I hope you twisted visionaries didn't ruin it for the purchaser!

    As Joe King alluded to, I could see the creature from the movie "Alien" when it jumped out of its egg. But then decided it looked more like a river delta...

    ...Before it jumped out and attached itself to someone's face!

    Still a beautiful ukulele.

    You can learn by reading, but you donít begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Nope. More like a spinal nerve diagram.

    Oops! I think I may have unintentionally derailed the thread into something else! I’m now hoping the buyer is a huge fan of such imageries else I would felt very guilty if it is indeed returned for such a reason. I’m not familiar with the return policy but is such reason valid? Just curious about it. Haha..

    And btw, you guys have such wild imaginations. I do now see the lobster tail shell (at the back of uke), and underbelly of a horseshoe crab (on the soundboard) in a H R Giger style for the aliens movie franchise.

    Well, you're definitely scoring in the 'unusual' range here. Most of your answers would be considered 'abnormal.' So either you're completely insane or you've just got a very special way of looking at things. We'll let you decide which it is.
    No wonder I saw weird stuff in things. If you are interested to know how how twisted you are:

    The grain pattern didn't bother me at all, even after your imaginations got hold of it.
    Funny how Mother Nature repeats her patterns in many beings...
    We have a mahogany TT that sounds just like this one, and there are no disturbing grain images on it.

    I'm 40% normal.
    Heck, the only normal is a cycle on a washer.

    I think most UU folks don’t fall into the normal category. Else how the hell did we ended up with so many ukes when we only can play 1 at a time.
