    NukeDOC,
    What camera are you using? Maybe try to use the back light feature if it has one. The video was a little dark. We want to see your smiling face.

    i just use the iSight camera built into my macbook. but i also wear that hat in that way to cover up my face a bit. ill admit, i am fairly narcissistic, if you couldnt tell from all the mirrors (you should see my medicine cabinet). but when it comes to posting videos online, im a pretty shy guy.

    Great quality. I thought for sure it was some sort of a digital video cam.

    man I wish I had a macbook! Not sure if i'm going to save up for a new ukulele or a macbook first.

    nUkedoc have you done customizations in the past? How did you learn?

    i mentioned in another thread that almost nothing i own is in its original format. im always trying to think about how i can make something "my own". you should see my motorcycle hahaha.

    but in terms of musical instruments, this is probably the biggest step ive made. and its not even close to done yet. im still going to figure a way to mickeymouse a pickguard, maybe do some carving or burning, gonna fill up the holes left in the headstock with some putty, gonna try to make a new nut and saddle too (still not completely satisfied with them).

    as far as the other instruments, its basically just repainting, stripping down to natural wood finish (elec guitar), pickup installation, strap button installation, switching from friction to geared tuners and vice versa, action set up. i may be forgetting some stuff.

    i would love to get into building ukes... but that is just too much of an initial investment for me at this point in my life to be making for the purpose of making one ultimate ukulele. id rather pay someone to make it for me. but anything short of that... im willing to figure it out and do it.

    Thats awesome. I'm pretty handy but I've never tried anything customizing any of my instruments. The biggest change I've ever made to an instrument was putting stickers on it. lol I bet it feels good to make something your own, unique. Something nobody else has eh?

    When my life gets a little less busy, I will learn though one of these days..
