Banjo Uke

One-off banjo uke.  I had a lot of fun letting the woods guide me through the design of this concert size banjo uke.  The rim uses the last of my stash of reclaimed Honduran rosewood and I made a pinwheel style suspended back from a particularly beautiful piece of slab sawn curly maple.  The suspended back keeps the sound from getting muted by a puffy jacket (or a puffy belly) and coupled with the concert scale length makes for a powerful and easy playing uke.  Curly maple neck and Pegheds tuners round out the build.
