View Full Version : Long Neck Concert in Australian Blackwood - Picture Set

I have some really amazing Blackwood stashed away that I wanted to use on a instrument that I would build for stock. Just so I didn't have a client placing any expectations or restrictions on what I wanted to do.

This one has been a complete delight to build. Where everything just fell into place. It was like the timber was waiting to be an instrument.


Lots more pictures on my website.

In my opinion, every instrument you build is a thing of beauty: this one I really love. I wish I had a stash of Blackwood.

That is some pretty amazing black wood. You must have been saving it. I know I would. Beautiful.

That is the most beautiful uke I have seen. Beautiful craftsmanship utilizing the beauty that nature provides. Wish I could pick this uke up.

Really beautiful instrument. How would you describe the sound?

Wow, Allen, what striking wood patterns. I've never seen a blackwood uke in person, but the photos look really nice. I sure wish I could afford a uke like this! Even the headstock design is unique.
