The Owl, A Macanudo soprano cigarbox ukulele. The Owl is made from a Macanudo cigar box. The uke has a re-purposed neck given me by Steve Spencer, a White Oak fretboard, Rosewood bridge, homemade Piezo pickup and Martin strings.  The soundhole rosette of a stylized Owl’s head is drawn with Prisma color pencils and Sharpies and finished with Nitrocellulose lacquer.
