Here is my 2nd try at a Camp uke style instrument. I wanted to come up with a way to make an instrument that would be suitable for travel and camping etc...but still is a "real" uke. My camp ukes are:
-solid wood, no laminates or plastic!
-made from recycled, salvaged and re-used old wood. All one of a kind!
-Hand made in USA with pro materials and techniques.
This one is:
-mahogany back and sides
-rosewood fingerboard and bridge
-sycamore headplate and end graft
-aquila strings, bone nut and saddle, friction tuners
-translucent black stain and oil finish
What do you think?
I plan on making a video soon.
