Well, if the Dairy Queen Ukulele was too rich for your blood, maybe you'll find the latest celebrity uke auction to be more within your budget.
"Jack Johnson and the Kokua Hawaii Foundation are offering this unique, personalized Jack Johnson ukulele, the “In Between Dreams” CD and songbook package. Once all bids are in, Jack Johnson will autograph the ukulele with recognition to the name of the highest bidder or name of their choice."The uke, a KoAlana soprano made by KoAloha Ukulele , was donated by Jack Johnson and the Kokua Hawaii Foundation. The auction will benefit Slow Food USA:
"...an educational organization dedicated to stewardship of the land and ecologically sound food production; to the revival of the kitchen and the table as centers of pleasure, culture, and community; to the invigoration and proliferation of regional, seasonal culinary traditions; to the creation of a collaborative, ecologically-oriented, and virtuous globalization; and to living a slower and more harmonious rhythm of life."Sounds like a match made in heaven!
