Now that looks like it would be a fun instrument to play.

It certainly is, and a lovely tone. I impressed myself :rolleyes:

Looks great. The headstock is in nice proportion to the body. Lovely wood.

Thanks Tobin, I bought 30 meters of 150mm x50mm Tasmanian Blackwood recently and really like how it performs.
The prototype was sold four hours after I posted here, I was NOT expecting that. No 2 is on the way.

A student is building one this week in the workshop. I have to confess it is my favourite shape and produces one of the best all round sounds. I have built quite a few of these and though the soprano is cute, the concert performs the best. Well done Dennis.

Thanks Pete nice to know I'm on the right track.
