Baritone ukulele (Bari Blue)
Bari Blue the electric ukulele was created for the desire to make an ukulele that sounds great acoustically, but also has some awesome features of an electric guitar. Like this amazing sounding humbucking pickup. I've used it in the past and knew it sounded great.
The aluminum cover plate works perfectly with the other aluminum accents.
The Shell back was stained turquoise Blue on Maple and works so well with the shell.
This is the first time I did such a bold color on the shell and I love it. Definitely not the last. Hope you like it too.
The neck and fingerboard are made from quarter sawn roasted Maple. Making it super strong and stable. With a carbon fiber for extra reinforcement.

I decided this instrument needed a case to match. This is a new way for me to make a case and it came out great. Yes the aluminum over time will get dinged up if you're out and about with it, but I figured you could then cover it with stickers.The funny thing is , the case was inspired by these aluminum red cross first aid cases I saw and then one day while out and a bout I found one the perfect size for the inside. This adds a nice touch and gives a spot for extra strings, tuner and such.
The recycled fabric bits came from my wife Su Halle. She makes upcycled sweaters.
I try to make my case with some recycled materials.
Disclaimer ! My cases are not meant for serious travel, like on air flights. If you need something like that I would suggest talking to a company like Gator cases.
