Hey Beau, didn't know you were such a player... Uke looks great. How about some specs and close ups.

Jeez Beau, you have outdone yourself again. That must have been a s**t load of work. The fifth picture says it all: eccentric soundhole, bound eccentric soundhole, purfling, and the way the sound hole purfling visually moves into the fretboard lines. Exquisite... My guess: you had drawers full of fretboard dots and you decided to use them all at once.
