Lunafied Ukulele by Xaphriel Lunafied Ukulele by Xaphriel
The uke has been doubled!

I've been meaning to ponify my ukulele for a while now, but couldn't figure out a design I liked. Then I saw this [link] and fell in love. So I tried it myself.

It turned out pretty good. The uke is a Woodstock, and was also my first ukulele. I named her Euterpe, after the Muse of Song and Lyric Poetry, and Muse of Music by extension.

For anyone interested, I used Citadel paints. Midnight Blue for the main part, and Ceramite White with a touch of Celestra Grey for the moon. Mostly because the blue is about 5 years old, going all goopy, and I can't use it for my regular customs, but I can't bring myself to throw it away.

MLP is property of Hasbro, and all credit for this idea goes to balthazar147.

You totally should! My only regret is that I can't really do the same again on my new (good) uke, because I can't really have 2 of the same :P

Yeah... I don't think I'll do this because I REALLY love the wood on my uke. But if I ever end up getting one that is cheaper, I'm doing this!

Yeah, I wouldn't reccomend doing it to a really good uke. This was my first, and it's not spectacular, so I didn't mind.

A friend of mine commented on my Facebook, asking where I got it done and how much. She thought I got it done professionally. Made my day. :D

I was going with 'The uke has been doubled!', but that's just as bad :P Become one with the shame...

I was initially going to do Dash, actually, but I didn't feel I could get it big enough with the space I had to work with.

I played a uke in high school until I found out I was useless with strings and sold it. I switched to the the dark art of didgeridoos.

Awesome! That's one cool granny :D
The problem is that loads of people started playing because it was the 'in' thing, but no one followed through. It gave the uke a rep as a toy instead of an instrument.

Me :P Plus a load of people I know

I started a year and a half ago, because I prefer 4 strings and didn't want a bass guitar. Plus, super portable and awesome!

Thanks though! I'm actually fixing the bottom left dot right now, it seems small now that I see it on a screen.
