Yes sweet looking. I like the thin purfling which makes the whole construction look light and delicate. Lesson there somewhere. Hmmmm...Nice design... Great job!

Very classy, and a timeless design. All good things in an instrument.

Beautiful job. I'm a sucker for curly maple. I'm thinking of having a bass uke made with it that I designed. It's as if you were looking over my shoulder the other night when I couldn't sleep and guided me when I stayed up most of the night doing this. I want ebony too, how did you get the neck, fretboard and bridge so dark?

Thank you very much!
@kohanmike: I used shellac and black dry pigment for the neck. Rather time-consuming.
