Hi Marv. Nice looking uke! I'm a young 74 looking at the next 30 years and new hobbies. Mine have been trial and error. There are boxes of errors in the basement and I just haven't the heart to discard them.
Maybe I should have a bonfire at the annual Bolerama. Should make for an interesting evening with friends as I toss them in, eh?

Cut up a gourd today. A little work on this old 1/2 scale guitar neck and I should have a nice little 17 " scale tenor banjuke sometime in the future.

Be sure to post photos when it's done ! A definite one-of-a-kind, don't think I've ever seen a tenor scale banjuke, especially with a gourd body.

Finished the neck and added a goatskin head. Some fret markers and new tuners should finish it off. As is with some old violin parts it plays pretty good.
