This instrument has accompanied me for the past 5 weeks on a research tour of the Pacific US. Fellow builders have appraised it and players wanted it.

Made from light compression curl koa this tenor has a really even blanked tone, great projection and works well picked or strummed. It has a 'shallow' body, 14 fret to the neck join with slotted headstock and our inlay in gold pearl. Beautiful nitrocellulose gloss finish and getting shinier through playing semi matt finish on the neck. List for one of these is 2250. At the current exchange rate you are looking at $2930 discounted to $2565.

Someone is going to get a very special uke. I remember seeing the HMS podcast where they talked about this one.
Good luck, Pete.
