    Didn't someone just post something like this on a Martin? That one looked more like a wire cage.

    The one on the Martin is commercially available, and is called a Tone Gard. It does not screw on, but clamps on instead.

    Nice solution to the body muting problem. I always noticed how much louder the uke sounds when played away from my body, like when I am sitting and it sits halfway out on my leg. I knew someone would come up with a variation on the Tone Gard cage. They don't seem to offer them for ukes, unless you ask for a custom one. Your design looks like it could fit a greater range of uke models.
