Cigar box Ukulele Olivia on top of the Mountain

A few posts back, I talked about taking Olivia to the top of the mountain and leaving her at the lodge for other hikers to strum.  This is a short slideshow of her journey from her first life, to the top of the mountain where she now resides.

A much better life, the second one, as a cigar box ukulele.  She has a poplar neck, rosewood fretboard, mahogany veneer headstock and sang her first wonderful song in November, 2009. May 2010, she moved to a higher place — elevation 6593′. Third highest peak in the Smokies.

    You are so right. Cigarbox ukes have such unique personalities. Olivia is Spanish cedar and at first you’d think the wood of the box is too think to create a good sound, but then there’s the pleasant surprise of her unique and good sound. Have you made a cigarbox uke?

  3. I came across this at the Leconte Lodge and searched around the CBG sites for the story behind it! Now I know the source, very cool!
