This is the second instrument I've made. Like the first, it's a cigar box ukulele that probably will remain in my personal collection. It's of concert scale and is somewhat more sophisticated than my first. You can click on the thumbnail images below for a larger view of each photo. Captions marked with an * indicate the view is accompanied by more information about the instrument. You'll also find a couple of sound samples in the thumbnails.
