Baritone Ukulele /Tenor guitar.  2021 sold

James contacted me about making a custom tenor guitar/baritone ukulele with steel strings. James is a working professional musician and arborist. He also builds instruments out of tin cans.

James sent me some stones to incorporate in the build. As seen in the pictures. It was great working with James and I appreciated the video he created.
