Jaws Shark Ukulele: This Was No Crafting Accident
September 7th, 2012
It’s the 35th anniversary of the release of Jaws this year, and the movie just got re-released in an awesome HD Blu-ray edition that you need to see if you haven’t already. In celebration of the shark-infested waters of yore, the guys from Celentano Woodworks have returned with another epic creation – the Jaws shark ukulele.
This awesome, handcrafted string instrument is sure to get a rise out of anyone with a fear of sharks, and is perfect for playing the familiar Jaws “dun-dun… dun-dun… dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun…” theme music (assuming you can play that on a ukulele.)
The ukulele’s body has been cut in the shape of a great white shark emerging from the water, and then adorned with a multitude of big, pointy teeth. The little image of the lady in the innertube is a nice touch on the head of the uke too.
It’s available over on Etsy for $700 (USD). As is the case with all of Celentano’s instruments, this uke will me made to order, and they already have a waiting list, thanks, I’m sure to classics like the Rock ‘em Sock ‘em and Autobot ukuleles. Oh, and here’s proof you can play the Jaws theme on a ukulele…
