His ukes aren't easy to come by, but they are wonderful. I have an all myrtle tenor of his that I adore. HMS has just posted a spruce/koa tenor.
It sounds and looks stunning. Just sayin. Great value here.

(The necks on his ukes are thicker than most. I've been fine with it and I have small hands.)

I'm a huge fan, but not connected in any way w/Phil.

Well, that didn't take long.
It has been sold.

It wasn't me!

Honestly, I'm not surprised,knowing the instrument I have. When mine was posted, I snatched it up at first look/hear.

Check out Phil's Facebook page; you can see my myrtle tenor I n all its glory.

Oops. I saw the wrong uke. My bad.
I went from a google link that was for a different Phil Riggio that had sold.
Thanks Google search engine, thanks a lot. Now I look foolish in front of my fellow ukers.

(Smiles and thinks that that is so something that could happen to me)

You could have seen a link to mine. All-myrtle, bought from HMS last May. Hope you liked it!

Are the necks merely thicker, or wider as well?

Just thicker...not wider at all.
