What a beautiful instrument Gerard. The #10 still receives much love over here across the oceans in Tasmania. Blessings my friend, hope your 2015 is a productive, peaceful one and filled with great things.

Very nice work. It reminds me for some reason of a Japanese instrument. Not sure why... Below a wild Japanese 4 string called a Biwa. Now that is one wild uke...

He, he, he .... Not so wild, this pineapple.
Mellow sound, clear and loud in struming.
Thank's

Gorgeous... and I normally find Pineapples a bit plain. Never played one, mind.

Being a fan of pineapple ukes, I'm naturally attracted to them, but let me tell you that your example is absolutely beautiful in it's simplicity and craftsmanship! I love the lines of the head stock, the end of the finger board and the elegant bridge. I dream about creating instruments like that.
