Christmas Ukulele Window Shopping

A bit hard to find the interesting ukuleles this week and eBay is bulging with Christmas present ukes. musicguymic alone has 214 Kala ukuleles up for sale and also a ‘blowout’ on Koa Pili Kokos. But his most intriguing lot is a set of three Nunes style ukuleles by William King.

Not long left to bid on this Celtic Fluke. I would have thought that someone would have snapped it up on a Buy It Now a long time ago.

A couple of different eras of Disney ukuleles: Mousekulele and High School Musical ukulele.

You might know I’m very fond of my Ashbury Concert Koa, so I’m quite tempted to buy a spruce version and give it a light skinned brother.

There’s this strange ukulele on eBay France. You can get a clearer idea of what it looks like, on the maker’s website. And it looks like the French have the coolest ukulele instruction books and CDs.

Ukulele photo of the week. Why did the single curl of hair go out of fashion? That look is hot.

Plenty of Christmas ukulele kitsch around. Ukulele Christmas baubles like this and this are fair enough, but Ukulele Santa salt and pepper shakers?

    the highschool musical uke is also more expensive than most beginner ukuleles so you’d expect it to be nice lol.

    zym: If Elton ever takes up the uke, I’m guessing his is going to look like that.

    cbf: It looks a heckuva lot like the Oscar Schmidt OU3WH, so I’d be willing to say it’s a decent uke.

Got something to say?
