    Default Beau Hannam Tenor reaching completion

    With the top on and pore filling in progress you can get an idea of what my new Beau Hannam Tenor will look like. Final finish will have a hand rubbed burst. I'll post more photos as they become available.

    Nice! Ours are litter mates. ;-) Mine (19" Selmer Tenor) will also get a sunburst.
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    "Litter mates", that's funny.

    Thanks Dana and Dave. I'm really looking forward to picking it up when we are in the States later this year.

    I think that this commission will be my last Hurrah but I will have the best Ukes after I retire and am living in that cardboard box under the bridge.

    Fabulous Uke Hollis.

    And good to see you have your retirement priorities in the right order.
    How bad is your UAS?
