Emily Hurd's Ukulele

My friend Emily Hurd ( came over yesterday so I could install a pickup into a uke I built her last year. It is great to see her and her uke, because it has been a long time!

Her uke is made all from recycled and salvaged wood. Fir top, walnut back and sides, rosewood fingerboard, fir neck and sycamore headplate. I got the fir from some porch boards, so I often leave some of the old paint in the cracks for fun.

Also, I should note that she met Jake Shimabukuro and he signed the back without her asking him to do it. Rock stars...
