I had an idea last night. It started with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jI52OZD-BlM
And as you may know, I've started another thread on another project for a bass ukulele. Once that's done(or I get bored with it), I was thinking: flip-over bass ukulele/ukulele combo.
Just a rough idea at this point, but here are the key ideas so far:
1) symmetric, double-cutout Gibson EB-3 styled body:
2) traveler guitar style tuning machine arrangement for the bass side:
3) semi-headless(headless for the bass side, but potentially use the extra length of the bass scale to set up tuners on the head end uke side). I haven't quite worked this out... But I think I could rig "single sided friction tuners".
4) piezo bridge pickups and preamp.
5) endpin output jack and strap pin at the head
6) maybe hide the preamp under a scratch guard
I don't play uke very well right now(or bass for that matter...), but I imagine this could be really fun w/ a loop pedal: record a loop on one side, flip over and solo with it.
Is it crazy?
In any case, it's a while off since I've got other projects going
