Born out of the "novelty uke" era during the late 1960's,
these gems were made by Swagerty Enterprises. On the left is the
Treholipee, the most outrageous, with its long peghead spear that
was so useful at the beach.
The idea was that when you weren't playing
the thing, you could stab it into the sand. If that just wasn't
cool enough, you could go for the Kook-a-le-le, with 2 necks to
double your ukulele pleasure. Rumor has it, the Treholipee also
could be used as a hockey stick.
