It's lovely, particularly like how the binding and purfling offset the top and sides. How's it sound?

Very loud and sound good to me! Only strung up today and strings still stretching a bit. Once it has settled I will see if I can get my son to organise a sound clip for me. I am no uke player! Keep trying to play guitar shapes on it!
