Essentially new Little River Tenor Ukulele made for me by Dave Sigman on commission. "Tree" curly mahogany, abalone inlays, slotted headstock, steals tuners. It cost me $2700, looks and plays great, but I am more of a spruce top aficionado, and play fingerpicking chord-melody solo style only. It's a great uke at a super price working on a sound sample
$1950 plus shipping

"The Tree." It is a single large Mahogany felled in Honduras in 1971 which has very unique quilting and tortoise shell figuring as well as, at least for guitars, very highly regarded tone properties (more towards rosewood as opposed to most Mahogany). Some quick links about it below.

I had trouble with your links. But this worked. Beautiful uke. Any sound samples?

Doc- did you sell your Little Rivers on FleaMarket? I think the walnut one was attractively priced--

What a beauty.
May we see a shot of the front straight on?

Alas, I have just completed a buy for a different ukulele. Otherwise, I'd jump on this one. An instrument made with Mahogany from "The Tree".

Wow!
