The ultimate NUD to cure my UAS (???)

Jenny, custom build by the illustrious Luis feu de mesquita (LFDM).

-Ziricote head plate
-Gotoh stealth tuners
-Radius Ebony fretboard bound in Koa with Koa inlay at the 12th
-Side port
-Ziricote back and sides
-Bear claw Spruce top bound in koa (front and back)
-Koa rosette, arm rest and tail graft
-Ebony bridge capped with Koa, bone compensated saddle.
-Black,white, red purfling

This thing Looks as good as it sounds, and sounds as good as it looks.
Both personable, and professional It's been a pleasure conversing with this master Luthier to create my dream build.

Thanks Luis!

Enjoy UU

George, congratulations! That is an absolutely gorgeous ukulele. Can't wait to hear how it sounds. You are right, the mother of all NUDs! Enjoy it.

I'm jealous...

Truely, a gorgeous Uke. Congratulations, but don’t fool yourself about UAS. Like the Spanish Inquisition, no one expects it.

Your Uke is gorgeous. Congratulations.

That's a real beauty!

That is a great looking ukulele. Congratulations!

Stunning Uke! Congratulations. Be great to hear a sound sample from you.

Yikes, that is one beautiful instrument. Just gorgeous, enjoy.

George, that is a wonderful ukulele. I have friends who own them as well and it'll be a superb instrument. I wanted to ask you, if you can, can you tell me what the actual measurements are for the body (width, length, and depth), approximately? The selmer styles always look very wide (maybe it's the illusion of the vertical soundhole). Anyway, thanks if you can. Congratulations!!

That is gorgeous! Congrats....can we have some closeup shots of it please?
I think it would end my UAS.

I couldn't tell you for sure, but it easily fits into a regular Tenor case. I think you're right the soundhole makes it look bigger than it is!

Thanks Guys a real privilege to be a part of a growing family in the know! I'll be sure to take some better photos I know these are awful at best! when my camera is back from repair I'll post some links to give you an idea of how it animates...best get practising.
