Had to show this one off -- Beau Hannam's cat, Pork Chop, offers his approval off the new, almost-done tenor ukulele ...

The uke looks great. And I always love Beau's photos of Porkchop. That cat is so fantastic. :)

It's just to-die-for, Steve. And it's going to sound even better than it looks!

And it'll make you play better too. Sometimes when I'm playing my Beau uke, as I go to hit a string I think "Oh darn, THAT'S going to be a clam," but the Beau uke knows what note I need to play and plays it! It's magic. :D (I think that's the Pork Chop touch.)

Stunning…. Redwood top is my guess…. what about back and sides? Post pics when you get it complete.

Redwood top and rosewood back/sides with figured tasmanian blackwood bindings.

Maybe Beau should give bibs to all the people who are his FB friends.
