New Ukulele alert - drool

As my readers may well know as well as me playing a banjo uke (an Ozark cheapie) I am also a huge fan of Flea and Fluke ukuleles.  Imagine my delight to hear that the two things had come together?

The instrument was unveiled at the NAMM musical instrument show recently, and I think it looks great. It has that typical Flea slotted head, is based on a soprano scale banjolele, and has an 8" remo head. What I like the most is the lack of the normal tensioners that you see on banjoleles, with a more unique drum looking mechanism to hold the head tight.

Have a look for yourselves in this video from NAMM brought to you by Ukulele Underground. Jim Beloff of the Magic Fluke Co talks us through the Fluke Banjolele.
