SOLD!

This is a 12 inch scale pineapple sopranino of my own design. It's a little larger than the usual 11" scale sopranino and it sounds great with GCEA tuning. It's a lot louder than one would expect from a sopranino, guaranteed. I'll be making more. This is #4 of a batch of six.

Bolted neck joint.
Solid maple back, sides, neck. Rustic maple harvested locally, with gray, pink, tan, mineral stains and an occasional hint of a pin knot. It has a light fiddleback figure.
12' radius domed back.
Solid sitka spruce top.
Locally harvested black walnut binding and headstock veneer.
Honduras rosewood bridge and fretboard bound in black walnut.
White fret markers and side dots.
Ebony nut and saddle with intonation set. Nut width = 1 3/8"
Martin strings.
Grover Champion Tuners
Hand rubbed oil finish.

The uke is very handmade and I left tooling marks in to keep with the rustic feel.

$285.00 includes shipping in the continental U.S.

Thanks for looking,
Vic

Here's a sound sample. Sorry about the sloppy playing, I'm a bit rusty and it's late.
