That gee-tar rocks! They should make those for real, I could see that design for a bass guitar too.
What kind of wood was she?
I really like the dark tones too. Is that a reproduced neck, or pulled from the other uke?

Nice work on both pieces!

How did you get the distressed look on the striping on the brush piece?

Hello,

I have made everything on the Uke except the tuners i have take it from an old
classic guitar.

The wood is lime tree im a not sure about the english name in french it's Tilleul
it's a white wood and very easyer to carve and the varnish is Teck color
i have put 3 coat of paint

For the pinstriping i have used steel wool pads on oneshot paint there does not need
to support extremely



See you.

Al's

Hey Al!

Great stuff you got goin on in Switzerland! Incredible! The uke is great!

Your style is very good. Keep it up - this website is a repository for the world's Tiki stuff, and you are great example of this phenomena! Very nice work.
