Happy Customer :)

Pumpkin or Pineapple??

It’s Halloween and tradition has it that carved pumpkins are the order of the day. I have no idea why, I’m sure you could Google it, but is this Concert Uke a Pumpkin or a Pineapple? Built mostly from Walnut grown on Quex Park, the instrument has actually come out of our new Pineapple Mould, but has the walnut neck attached to the ‘wrong’ end! Fingerboard and mouth (I mean bridge) are from a wild cherry cut on the Park a couple of years ago, and it sports Aquila strings strung in gCEA tuning.

A fun instrument, it sounds excellent. It is no competition though, for the family of Pumpkins on guard outside the unit! Happy Halloween.
