    Maybe crazy, but stunningly beautiful craftsmanship!

    Craig's was given to him because like all endorsees he told me he would promote it. Sadly he never did and that was the last time I made an instrument for a potential endorsee. There are several out there to the Le Domino shaoe and design and several like the one pictured to the Martin shape. I don't think I could make one now...

    I remember some years back when he was a very prominent voice in the ukulele community. I have not heard mention of him in years. From the link, I am not sure if he even plays ukulele anymore. His music seems to be more guitar based these days.

    It's amazing what an insular world the ukulele world is. Yes, Pete did make me a wonderful ukulele, I guess I never "promoted" it the way he wanted me too. It is still one of my favorite instruments to play, but it is one of MANY instruments I play. I just released my 37th album. (craigrobertson.bandcamp.com) and the newest album coming out in January will be ALL UKULELE AND VOICE. Twenty original songs written on the ukulele. I'm a musician. I make music. It's odd that the "ukulele community" doesn't seem to understand that it's about the music you make, not the instrument you use.
