Did I see this uke somewhere....or was I just dreaming?!

A curly koa, concert size, with an abalone rosette and purfling, K&K Twin Spot passive pickup or similar, sporting peghead tuners and a tie bridge.

If you've seen a uke like this around please do let me know because it could just be my next uke based on the direction my ukulele journey is taking me! ;)

Nice find, Danno!

Now, if I gave up the friction tuners.... humm...what doors might that open...?

those aren't friction tuners, they're pegheads...pegheads are geared tuners that look like tuning pegs, that's what you asked for.

Like how you phrased that, fretie, about the journey taking you.

Pretty astonishing that you describe it and UkeDanno finds it and posts back within an hour. The power of minds on the Internet. Wow.

I just googled what he was asking for! I wasn't looking for anything, but sure wish I had the cash to buy it!

If you need an address in the US to send it to Fretie; you can always send it here. That's one spectacular instrument.
