Due to some foreseen and unforeseen delays, my Cocobolo concert ukulele will be arriving a week later than originally anticipated. However, Kevin did send me some pics so I can give you all a preview. I'm glad he did because my camera sh-- the bed, totally.
It has a side soundport, radiused fretboard, side fret markers, hi gloss finish, and fancy peghead tuners, I forgot what kind they are. Plus it will have a pre-amp, so I can blast the neighbors into begging me to stop playing.8803588036880378803888039

Gorgeous sap wood elements on a very pretty wood set. I bet you are finding it hard to wait these final days before delivery.

Very nice! They are constantly improving their offerings. Congratulations!

Indeed! I might have to get another one for the side port, Pegheads, and pickup missing from mine. :p

That looks amazing. I got to demo one of the earlier concert versions for a bit and it was really nice. I've also e-mailed with Kevin a little back then and he was great to "talk" to. Customer service was top notch. It should be well worth the wait.

Thanks for all the kind posts all! When it comes I shall try to learn to post a sound sample for you all.
That will be my only planned 2016 uke purchase, so I'm sitting on pins and needles.

Ooh Nickie, that is a beauty! You are going to love that sound port. My pineapple has one, and it delivers those sweet sounds right to my ears.

A Cocobolo is worth the wait.
