Just finished these ..The one on the left is Mahogany stained dark with walnut stain the rosette is reversed WBWBW instead of BWBWB with an Ebony 12 fret fingerboard also the sound hole is slightly off centre :(..so i'm thinking of selling it as a second...Tho it sounds and plays great

The Uke to the right is also a walnut stain job but with a Rosewood 17 fret fingerboard ..this one i'm quite happy with it's a nice uke good player Volume and tone .:D

Now the one in the centre is a great little soprano made from reclaimed Cuban Mahogany (Gifted by Pete Howlett) Ebony Fingerboard no stain just the natural Mahogany and FP, this also sounds great with the special volume & tone that you get from this type of material

All three looking very nice. That figured reclaimed mahogany is beautiful indeed.

What is the headstock overlay of the left hand side one?

Interesting grain. Could you post a close-up shot of that peghead?
