    Default NUD: Rebel Prototype

    How can you resist a uke called the Double Cheesecake? I couldn't. Rebel has produced several prototype ukuleles in different sizes. These all have bindings on the top and bottom. The one I got is a spruce/mahogany concert. Naturally, it sounds beautiful.

    So you're the one who bought that. I'd been watching those prototypes. Mim had some as did Uke Republic. Jealous!

    Yes, I knew I would have to move fast. I've had a Rebel in the back of my mind for quite a while, and seeing the prototype won me over. Mim was closed (and more expensive), so I went with Uke Republic. Very fast delivery.

    The binding. There are a couple acacia ones floating around out there too. They do not normally offer acacia models under the Rebel brand.

    They are great ukes. I had a double creme soprano that I really liked but only owned for a short time because I had bought too many instruments and needed to let something go. I'd like another Rebel some day. I really like the binding in these, but am holding off on buying instruments at the moment.

    Glad you like it! Have fun!

    Looks great. It is an interesting brand for sure. I've never seen one in the wild.

    Very nice! Do you know if there's meaning behind the fret marker icons or are they just being art decoey

    No idea. I could make something up, if you like. Nice or sinister?
