The Great Mush-Uke Ukulele @ 100 mile finds

This is the kind of vendor we live for at 100 mile finds. Ross's website boosts that the mush-uke's are "Forged in a tiny hut buried deep in the heart of Central Toronto" Love it!
They are each unique and a little different as each is separately handmade. They are numbered and signed. There is talk of frets and echo stems, mushroom cover caps and resonator cones, and Piezo element! Clearly I'm not musical, but it all sounds fantastic!
The Great Canadian Mush-Uke is an iron necked 17" scale resophonic Ukulele format guitar. It sounds great, is fun to play and is built to last. Amazingly affordable, unique resophonic four string guitar, hand spun aluminum cone, adjustable iron bridge with biscuit. Turned Spruce coverplate with a hollow wood stem. Can come with a 1/4" jack and Piezo element for amp / recording hook up.

Here's the You Tube link:

Ross sold-out at Christmas this year and "...during the re-stock process I have tinkered a bit with the neck design and made it faster and more tapered at the top..." If you are a Ukulele enthusiast or eclectic musician, his your guy!
