Waverly's F-Hole Concert Ukes



I'm liking the look of these from Waverly Street. I'm not crazy about the Fender-style headstock, but other than that, they look fantastic.

Anyone play any of Dave's ( I think it's Dave) other instruments?

not a fan of the headstock either. the rest looks kinda neat though, in a wannabe archtop guitar sorta way.

I take back the fws. If he hadn't blown me off, the Adelle Fluke wouldn't have been made.

He has some fairly affordable banjo ukes. Ive always wondered if they were any good. Maybe Adelle would have ended up with F-holes? Wait, that didn't come out right....

Thanks for the hint, Deach. Despite the bad sound quality of the video, I guess it sounds pretty good! Interesting wood, too. Haven't seen an uke made of oak wood before. Cool!

Freshwater Sailing! You guys are so. cool.

Oh, and I hate slotted and electric-guitar-style headstocks on a uuk (this will be the new way to spell the *correct* pronounciation of "ook", with a little bit of a British accent). And no, my purist heart tells me it will still be "a" and not "an". That is blasphemy for something noble as a ukulele.

"I would kill for a uuk!"

I'd kill ya over an ook! :-) (Aren't we ukulistas all peaceloving brothas & sistas!!??) Oh wow, that rhymes! Have to include this line in my next "Bring the Song"-Song!

I think I know what the F stands for...

UkeNinja said...

Ah, now I smell something too...

I like the sound of my WS but the neck is too slim for me. I hold a lot of air in my left hand when I'm chording.

Deach, which WS are you referring to?
