This is my friend Axel Menezes' old Tombo electric 'ukulele from the 60s. He found it in the dirt on Kaua'i and brought it to our Institute of Hawaiian Music at UH Maui college for me to check out. I have a luthier neighbor (Bill Ford of Windward 'Ukuleles: http://www.windwardwoods.com/ukuleles/) that helped rout out the pickup cavities and make a nut. I wired up some simple electronics and did some minor adjustments and it was ready to go! No idea if it's true to the original, but with few pictures to work with this is what came out...
