    Default Cigar Box Ukulele No. 5

    Attached are some photos of the 5th cigar box ukulele I have built. The link will take you to my YouTube channel for a video sound sample of the ukulele. This one turned out very well, sounds good and plays great. Hope you enjoy...

    Wow! That sounds SO nice.

    Great job, mate. Well done.
    And whether the blood be highland, lowland or no,
    And whether the skin be black or white as the snow,
    Of kith and of kin we are one, be it right, be it wrong,
    As long as our hearts beat true to the lilt of a song.

    Looks great. I've thought about trying to make one. Even aquired a cigar box. Any recommendations on where to get a quality neck, fretboard. etc.?
