I know every uke is different, but if there is a "quintessential" Barron River look, that is it.

It looks quite intriguing, with such an unusual mix of woods, too. I wonder what it sounds like!

Awsome looking ukulele Alan. Love to hear a sound sample of that 3000 year old ancient spruce. I love spruce. Nice work. Hope to get one of you creations in the future..

Another master uke! Beautiful job Allen. I am sure it plays and sounds as wonderful as the two I have! Well my daughter has one I want to steal but I get to play two ;-). Miss you guys! Corrinne says hello.

Wow Allen, just wow. That is easily the most beautiful uke I've seen. I would absolutely love to have one like it one day.

Ps. Anyone else see the face in the second picture =)? Ds.

I am very much a function-over-form kind of guy, but that is one of the most impressive-looking instruments I've ever seen. Well done, sir -- you win the internet today.
