Ukulele Window Shopping

Note this down as the week ukulele makers started going completely insane. WaverlyStreet have made an aluminum ukulele (there’s a video of it here). Here’s a ukulele with a whammy bar which sounds nasty (thanks to vialde for finding that). Kealani have gone safariing and have come back with leopard skin and zebra wood ukuleles.

But the real ‘I don’t care how ridiculous it is, I want it’ ukulele is the doube neck ukulele from D&D.

It looks like BugsGear have been raiding the Kala design cupboard for their new pineapple and f-hole Eleukes. The big selling point seems to be that you can plug your ipod into them and play along with it. Just the sort of gimmick that would hook me in. Even if those f-holes are very unsexy and blob-like.

    mmm…double neck. I’ve always wanted a concert baritone combo.

    my double neck would be an eleuke style affair with one 8 string neck and one four bioth concert length in the glassic gibson double neck sg stylee
    how horrid does the aluminiium uke sound?

    robgonzo and cbf: I’d quite like a double neck bass guitar/ukulele. In theory.
