    Re the wait, as I was planning on visiting the USA in September I suggested to Beau that he push me down his build list as I could pick it up while there. He was also involved with the luthiers for a cause project. As it turned out I didn't go to the States but am traveling here in Oz and I didn't want him to ship it until I was back home, which I will be in early November.

    All good things come to those who know how to wait. He sure has done a great job.

    Spectacular!! Love the fine appointments you chose. As an example, the 12th fret marker. Perfect! I tend to like something other than simple dots for my markers, which can range from no fingerboard markers, to non-dot shapes to more ornate. On my BH which Beau has been working alongside yours, we did black mother of pearl rectangles.

    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."

    Curious about the relative importance of tonewood vs. the luthier? See Luthiers for a Cause to learn more!
