A Cigarbox Uke in progress

The uke started life in New Orleans from the "Cigar Factory". I found a salvaged Fender Concert uke neck on Craigslist. The fretboard was removed, neck pegged to the body and the headstock was freely painted with red enamel and glitter.

The neck joint was fit and pegged. The cigarbox will open allowing access to piezo pickup.
