Happy reading.

Thanks for sharing...

For those interested, there was also a recent audio podcast by The Ukulele Site, where Andrew speaks with Beau Hannam which can be found here:

The article with Beau is an enjoyable read. In the next week or so, there will be an announcement about the project with other luthiers that he mentions. ;-)

Booli: thanks for the link to the podcast. It was very interesting.
Eddie: in the podcast at minute 43, Beau talks about an Eddie who ordered a uke from him. Was that you he was referring to?

Mine was built about the same time as "The Tree" guitar. Don't see it in the pics.

Yes. Practically a legend in my own mind. ;-)

There was another reference to you in the written part as well, regarding 7 separate builds . . . . . . .

I saw the article and watched the podcast but I'm already a huge fan of Beau's, the custom Selmer style tenor uke he made for me with a scoop instead of a cutaway is gorgeous and according to Beau the fanciest uke he ever made for anyone. I'm extremely proud to own this beauty. It's in low G with wound G and C strings and D'addario black nylon E, A strings and sounds amazing. 974059740697407
I've included pics of Laurie Hannam holding the uke after completion and a pic of Jake playing my uke after his concert in Ridgefield CT.

I suppose the wait list just got longer:-). I don't anything about the project, but seem to recall Eddie posting something about a uke of his from Hive, that was also made from "The Tree" -guess Hive did not keep all to himself.
