    Well, something like this would be a bit too heavy, wouldn't it?

    I reckon if my old friend the Golden Syrup tin is used at the "bridge" end (like on Steve's) then a piezo could be fitted. Yikes, I could make the whole thing for 2.50 including jack socket!!

    If I used an Aquila C string would it be a Diddley Uke? Heck, I just invented something!

    Yeah...if you don't build it yourself it's not really a didley bow

    I love Seasick Steve - hadn't seen that particular video before, though. Thanks!
    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    Check out my ukulele-themed "stuff" at http://www.cafepress.com/fivebyfiveukulele - proceeds go to a good cause...UAS treatment!

    Maybe if you put four strings on it and tuned them GCEA... would that be a new instrument or still a ukulele? Let's open the debate!

    You don't need to be that much technical, go ahead and give it a shot! It would be more like a Sunday project, though.

    Glad you enjoyed it. That was the first I saw of Seasick Steve (searching for diddley bo videos after watching It Might Get Loud) and it got me hooked. Pure raw awesomeness!
