My turn to to contribute and display my most precious of possessions.

My LFDM Ukaferri Amigo 2;

- 17 inch scale
- 39mm nut
- Top Bearclaw Sitka spruce
- Back & sides Curly macorie
- Neck Cuban cedar
- Fretboard/Bridge Indian rosewood
- Binding Ebony
- Tuners Wilkinson

This was bought from the buy and sell forums here on UU, and am very grateful to him for guiding me through the process and making it as easy as possible!
This thing plays like a dream, effortless fretting, sustain for days! And the zero fret makes chords on the first fret a doddle.
New to cutaways, but I'm truly converted, makes playing lovely all the way up the neck.
I tried a few string sets to find the sound i was looking for. Tried Aquilas (Set that it arrived with), Worth clears, D'Addario carbons but settled with La belle with w/3rd (high g). I like Warm over bright and these seem to fit the bill.
Here is a link of me (trying to play it) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySOFDeMF900

Let me be the first to congratulate you and welcome you to the LfdM family. That is a great NUD post, good pictures and description really gives an excellent idea of what this ukulele is all about. The video you did was fantastic......you are obviously a very accomplished player and you made that instrument sing.

I have my tenor strung low G but after hearing that maybe I need a second tenor that I can keep strung high G :p
