Hi,
I've Got an Australian Red Cedar & Purple Gidgee Tenor forsale

Back and sides - Australian Red Cedar
Neck - Koto, an African wood in the same family as Mahogany
Heastock overlay, fretboard, bridge and rosette - Purple Gidgee.
Soundboard - Engelmann Spruce
Bindings - Curly Mulga sapwood.
Nut & Saddle - Northern Teritory Buffalo Horn
Tuners - Grover.
Bound fretboard, with Evo Gold fret wire.
It has a gloss mirror finish in Nitro cellulous lacquere

The Red Cedar came from the Boyne Valley region in central Queensland Australia, the tree had been dead for many years and was milled in the early eighties and has been in our wood collection since then.

Purple Gidgee is a rare Australian Acacia, when cut the wood is a dull green brown colour, but over time it changes to a deep purple. The pieces used here have had some sapwood left on them to show that it hasn't been stained.

You can view some pictures via the link below, more pictures and sound clip available on request.

That is the most beautiful ukulele I've ever seen. A true work of art!

Hi John,
It's $1,500 Australian Dollars, which includes the hard case. Not sure what would be involved in sending it to the United States, or what the shipping cost would be. This is the first instrument I have offered for sale on UU, so it's the start of a learning experience, which I'm looking forward to.
Cheers
Graham

Thankyou, for flattering comment, it's one of many that I've made. Have a look on my website you can see some of my past builds in the Gallery section and builds in progress can be seen in Workshop/what's on the bench section.
Thanks again for comment.
Cheers
Graham
