Frankenstein’s Ukulele

Frankenstein's Uke‘Just for fun’ I threw together a home designed and built Ukulele over the last few weekends. Influenced by cigar box uke’s and guitars, I took their essential design, but worked from scratch.

The straight angled body and sound holes give it enough lack of beauty that its been named Frankenstein’s Ukulele – although to be fair to old Frank, I didnt reuse any old body parts…perhaps its actually Pinocchio’s – but his would be more crafted and carved.

How does it play? Well, with me behind the strings, it doesn’t play any worse than anything else. Thats to say one would recoil at my playing before the sound quality. Its not bad. Strings are just fresh on today, so still bedding in. Tone is nice, but not as long standing as my purchased units.

Perhaps its Frankenstein 1.0
