I was considering doing this myself - good for you! I'll be watching.

What a fun project!
If you decide to put steel strings on it, half a P-bass pickup is perfect! Or maybe you're going with something fancier like Piezos?

Earnest Instruments makes an acoustic Tele uke. I've played one and heard it used in concert and it gave me serious UAS. http://www.earnestinstruments.com/tululele.html

Looks Like a Telukesination, yuk yuk yuk

Are there any plans floatin around for this project? I'm going to have some spare wood available soon... this would be fun. Great work!

I was really interested in doing something like this too. This is a really awesome build so far by the way. I was wondering what other people thought about how thin you could safely rout the sides and back of the bowl to. If I really want thin, like .125 inches, should I just bend sides?
