Got this one to replace my Mainland Cedar top soprano*: http://www.uke-fan.com/tommy-rodriguez-cedar-rosewood-custom-soprano-ukulele/

(I would past pictures but they did a better job than I did...)

(And no, that is not what I paid for it!)


* Which is now for sale in the appropriate forum.

Wow, looks nice, but pricey little buggers for a soprano :eek:

Maybe that's why it didn't sell at Fan Ukuleles in Richmond. I bought it directly from Tommy at a price that some would consider a steal...

I probably saw it there before I bought it from him - His were hanging up high on the wall. I refused their request that they would pull it down if I wanted to look at it because I know it was out of my price range.

As for the wood, "The Rosewood on the back and sides has a wonderful two tone look to it because it has the sapwood (lighter shade) still attached, which was the "living" part of the tree that is usually cut off before being used. "

On Monday, I was pleased to add Tommy Rodriguez to our lineup of vendors at our Hop 'N Uke Fest in July ( https://www.facebook.com/events/303961890285117/ ). Tommy said he would have 4 new ukes to sell.

If you haven't seen any of Tommy's work, here is an older page featuring a couple of his ukuleles: https://fanguitarandukulele.wordpres...iguez-ukulele/

(I own that beautiful cedar and rosewood soprano... )
