An Idea For An Electric Ukulele

The other day I was sifting through my scrap wood pile and found a couple of thick slabs of Mahogany that are too small to use for an electric guitar body. Not wanting to let this nice wood go to waste, I've decided to try my hand at building an electric ukulele. I thought about an electric mandolin, but ukuleles are so popular right now. I've done a rough drawing based on my Highline Single Cut body. Who knows, I may add this plan to my order page.
