Saw this story about a well traveled and examined uke. Supposedly a book is/was being published about it.

I found the imaging technologies used on this uke at the Smithsonian rather fascinating. The link to this is in the article, when you click on the side by side pics of the uke's back. https://www.si.edu/MCIImagingStudio/KonterUke

I've seen articles about that uke. Maybe it's worth a trip to PA.
