Devine, Spalted Mango: Ukulele Window Shopping

Nice bit of floral soundhole work on this Divine ukulele. And the listing refers to both Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready of Pearl Jam playing Divine ukuleles. I wasn’t aware that McCready was a uker. If anyone knows of any video or photo of him ukeing – I’d love to know.

Spalted mango seems to be the crazy grain of choice for ukes at the moment with Lanikai’s SM range. Seems a bit hit and miss to me. Sometimes looks great, sometimes looks a complete mess.

Gorgeous taropatch, horrible listing. Pick a colour (I hear black has worked pretty well for the last few hundred years) and stick with it.

Also some layout and font issues on this listing. But it’s worth the effort because the story of the Duncan Sisters is fascinating (quick tip: after, “performers can only dream of” read the press cutting).

I’m not a fan of picks on ukes but picks this sexy could defintely change my mind.

Ukulele kitsch of the week: Orca whale, ukulele playing, ship’s captain.

Either I’m hopelessly naive or the person who listed this photo has an over-active imagination because I can’t work out why a girl playing a ukulele on her own would be of particular interest to lesbians.
