"YAMA-UKE" Baritone Ukekele. My first Ukelele build. Built this for a friends 60th birthday. Body is a metal side panel from a mid-70's Yamaha RS100 motorcycle.
Neck is Iroko and the fretboard is walnut. The pick up is a 8K toaster mini-humbucker with volume and tone knobs. I inserted a 1962 sixpence to commemorate the year my friend was born. The build provided a few challenges due to the uneven shape of the "body" but all came out good in the end
He loves it and can't put it down... mission accomplished.

Haha, you know your 2-stroke motorbikes Unc J. I never thought of that. It maybe could sound like a 2-stroke put through a suitable FX pedal lol

Does it sound at all like a 2 stroke?  And do you have to mix the oil and gas?
