    Learned something new, thanks! I seen this before, just didn't know the name for it. A good amount of jazz guitars are like this.

    Ah a bit like on a cello

    I meant to get a shot of the cantilevered fret board. It’s not a big gap but it’s there. Cool instrument but I need bigger tenor size. Fretboard was too tiny for my hands. Still waiting to see if there are more or if these or only soprano

    Thanks again for all the info and photos.

    The video that Ukulele Eddie linked to is fellow UU member Dominator, who has not posted on UU for some time, and it's nice to see that yet another a UU member (you - M3Ukulele) has had a chance to get hands-on with one of these new Seagull ukes.

    Maybe we can ask Dominator to also post his thoughts after having played one of these?

    Booli, while the person certainly bears a resemblance to a beardless Dominator, it is not Dom (and I confirmed this with him). But I'm hoping to hear more from others who get to try this out. If it were a concert, I would likely be clicking "buy". At $399 street price, it seems like a reasonable buy, but I'd want to try one in person given the shorter scale.
    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."

    Yes, for me and at that price, I'd like to see a tenor and/or concert option as I have little use for, and infrequently spend time on soprano scale.

    Also...

    Here is Dom without a beard:

    and he looks a lot like the player in this video to me:

    if not the same person, maybe either I'm cross-eyed, or he has a doppelganger.

    Just wondering if any one else had a chance to play one of these? I was considering getting a nylon string version.This will be a bit of a go at an electric uke for me so it won't be my main player.
