Portrait

This ukulele is made of Bubinga: an African Rosewood. The Ebony fingerboard and bridge echo the head design.

This was made for an art show, so the silhouette is of no one in particular, but given some photographs we could make one that looks like someone you love.

A custom ukulele makes a great gift and would surely become the most treasured of keepsakes.P1000241P1000242P1000243

This is a 6 string tenor built around a ukulele theme. We at UkuLuLu try to carry the design through the whole instrument: the soundhole, the head shape, the inlay, the fingerboard, the bridge, and even the choice of wood. In this one, the head is shaped like a ukulele, the end of the fingerboard is shaped like a ukulele, and the bridge is a ukulele. Perhaps we carried this a little too far…

 

The six strings are really good for fingerpicking. It’s still a ukulele, but it’s got more bass to it than a 4 string uke.
