I always wanted a Ukulele I just never got around & bought one.
Anywho, I have several small childs Guitars literally hanging on the walls in my Music Room so I got to thinking, hmmmm.
I bet I could refurbish them & convert'em to Ukuleles.
I finished my 1st. one yesterday I had to rework the frets, make a Nut for it do a few repairs on the body & replace the Guitar style Tuners with Friction pegs to give it that Ukulele look & feel & by george I have had a ball playing the little thing.
I'm going to convert the next one into a Ukulele also. That one is about 1/2 again bigger in size than the 1st. one.
I'm going to convert 3 different size Guitars. one will have the neck shaved to the 5th fret for a 5th string peg to make it G gitjo
