    Hey Ken,
    I know that you have close to perfected your system of uke making for soprano ukes. With this tenor, did you use some more basic forms,molds,etc for your build? Or are you set up for Tenor making the way you are set up for Sopranos. I'd just love seeing your "on the fly" stuff.

    Still asking for the reason of 17 frets fingerboard... who put here, under 12th fret?
    And, too, I asking for (but I'am not pro luthier) if the long part of the fingerboard glued on the top
    don't let vibs less free than with a short 12 frets fingerboard...
    Sorry for my poor english... hope you understand what I mind.
