Cigar Box Ukulele—Blue Haze Number 3. A ‘Triple-Seven’ box. Cherry Neck with walnut fretboard. Gold frets, gold tuners, brass sound-hole trim ring and brass on Plexiglas bridge. Only the second ‘scarf-joint’ neck I’ve made but it worked out well. Walnut ‘ears’ on the headstock. Concert/Standard size, 15” scale. Sound hole trim is a brass bath tube/shower drain cover from the orange flavored big-box store. Dot markers are maple. Also includes a piezo pickup under the bridge inside the box. This uke making is addictive and fun, I’ve got two more started already.
