Machined Electric Travel Ukulele

In December 2015 (4 whole years ago!)  I machined an electric ukulele out of some aluminum, stainless steel, and brass.  The whole thing was built over the course of less than a week, with no computer aided design save for the fret-board.

It's a headless design with the tuners built into the body.  Under the carbon fiber cover at the center is a home-made low profile pickup.  The body was hand-shaped using a combination of a bandsaw, manual milling machine, and hand-filing.
