And we're off!
Finally got into the first round of builds for 2013 and it's definitely going to be different. Starting things off this year, I'm doing a run of three ukuleles. After the resounding success I had with the Noisy Cricket Single-Cut prototype, I decided to have another go at things and improve my design a bit. This round of ukuleles will be "standard" shaped (no cutaways), have fixed bridges, and will use single-coil size twin blade pickups. Here's a few shots of the first one going to a former intern at work:
Additionally, with this build, I'm planning on experimenting with some wood dyes on one of them. A friend of mine has been asking me for a purple guitar for about two and a half years since she found out that I build; as a thank you for keeping me motivated and always being enthused about what I'm doing, I'm making her a purple ukulele.
