Crehore Tickler Ukulele #2, 2009
Built from scratch by Lou Reimuller (luthier). Designed and painted by Amy Crehore, Tickler Ukulele Number Two has beautiful ivoroid binding around all sides, neck and headstock. The top is spruce, the back and sides are mahogany. The neck is black walnut. The wood has been aged to perfection for over 30 years.

The tuner buttons are hand-carved from blackwood. There is a mother-of-toilet-seat fingerboard (pearloid), two rings of B&W rossette around sound hole, plus more binding, and a thin strip of persimmon down the back of the neck. There is an end graft triangle of B&W ebony with an ivory border, plus an ivory "cloud" inlay on the bottom of the front (made from an old piano key).

The bridge is ebony with a blackwood saddle and there is an ebony cap on the heel. The nut is made of bone.

It has a new tweed case and there is a label on the inside with the Tickler logo.

Tickler Uke # Two is a pineapple-shaped uke with a special pineapple-shaped headstock.
The painting on the front is of a pierrot and a native girl dancing a pineapple dance. The headstock has a painted pineapple pattern with a monkey's head and the "crehore" name.
This is a one-of-a-kind fine art uke.
