This weekend I fretted a 25" scale, 22 fret aspen fingerboard and three 12 fret soprano uke oak fingerboards.
Cut a hole and dry mounted my 1942 PA License Plate in an Undergrown Gordito box for MY guitar! I say MY but I thought my latest uke was mine, but I'm donating THAT to an raffle for a fundraiser for a local artist who is in a bad spot financially.
1940's PA plates are 12" long & really wide - it takes up nearly the entire Gordito box and it's going to sound great! I think I might just put a mag pickup under the plate.
Picked up a BOAT PADDLE!!!! at a yard sale. Going to make a bass. Since the handle part is beveled I think I'm going to use finish nails for frets. Wired an old bass pickup I had lying around and ordered a tuning machine from Ben. This is going to be a sweet build!
Got two Moto Ukes to build for (and I can't believe this) paying customers. People saw the moto uke I built and it clicked I guess. so here we go. A couple buck here and there - why not?
