Ukuleles Rule! Just ask Shawn Fogel.

After his buzzed-about performance of The Beatles Complete on Ukulele Festival in Austin at SXSW this past March, with the likes of Ben Kweller, and his project Neutral Uke Hotel, Golden Bloom's Shawn Fogel has done the unthinkable. We say unthinkable because how often do you hear of a company giving away a Ukulele endorsement?! We don't even know if Tiny Tim ever got this kind of offer.

Fogel's love for both indie pop icons Neutral Milk Hotel and the littlest-guitar-that-could -- the ukulele -- Eastwood Guitars is sending Fogel a brand new Airline electric ukulele to play at his upcoming Neutral Uke Hotel shows and for all future ukulele jams!

Take a peak at the Eastwood Guitars website for a peak of the sleek new ukulele.

Some info about the new uke: "New for 2010, Airline® Guitars releases their Electric UKULELE. The KOA top and chambered mahogany body combine with the Piezo pickup to give you a truly authentic Ukulele tone and playability. When you want to take is a step further, have some fun through your favorite guitar effects pedals!"
