Formula 1, the cutting edge, Black Box, Area 51…this is our current concept ukulele. It’s an asymmetric, semi-hollow, flattop, electric tenor that is built for speed. It’s executed in Padauk and Curly Maple giving it a nearly unbelieveable cardinal and gold color. On a machine like this the details are irrelevant, it’s all about the gestalt, the chi, the Force. Feel it!
Not your father's ukulele...this one throws convention to the wind!
If you think that back looks comfortable to hold, you would be correct.
F1 is asymmetrical in nearly every direction. It's all about comfort.
Other than the neck joint. F1 looks fairly standard in this top view
...but from the bottom view it's all organic.
Again, it's all about the comfort. Tapered inset neck joint.
A round soundhole just didn't seem like it belonged here.
Zero fret makes the nut placement very accurate
It's like a butt-print in the sand
Smile when you play that!
This is the uke Picasso would have played.
Or maybe Dali, since it kind of looks like it melted. I’ll be bringing this one to the next play-a-long so you can see and hear it.
Welcome back to the real world (for us that is) This Ukelele is outstanding, can’t wait to feel it in my hands.
A work of art it is…
My walnut sides came out of the mold in 48 hours with very little spring
back. Can hardly wait for Christmas to get over with so I can back to work and complete my first walnut concert Ukelele.
This one is a beauty! Padauk is wonderful wood but it’s very very hard. The color though…wow, it is sooo bold!
