The Ukuleopod or the Squidulele

Alright, I cheated a bit on this one…
It was my wife birthday yesterday, she’d always half joked about wanting a ukulele, and she’s had a serious squid obsession since she was a little girl. So I did what any good husband would do, I bought a cheap ukulele and engraved a squid into it!
I engraved one layer and stained it with a mahogany stain, then engraved another layer to get a 2 tone engraved look.
She’s had it for less than 2 days and is already pounding out some awesome ukulele chords, which is bloody impressive for someone who’s never played a stringed instrument before. She’s a natural and I will try and persuade her to let me record her play it soon!
