If you’re as into gawping at vintage instruments as I am, I highly recommend following luthier Jake Wildwood’s blog. Recent ukes include a 1920s Pacheco & Klemm Style 5 banjolele and an aeroplane-shaped Stromberg-Voisinet Aero uke.

There are loads of weird instruments on there too like the 1900s Strohviols Phonofiddle and the Bernie Lehmann 5-String vielle.
