BEAUTIFUL work Dave. Any plans for more pineapples this summer? ;)
My wife has taken over #51 so I may need another. :D

Can't really justify buying one, but I sure would love to have one...

Same. I used to not dig the sound but I've really started to like it recently. Some day...

If I didn't already have an old La Pacifica Banjolele I just restored I would buy this WS without hesitation.

Looks and sounds great, I really need to get me a banjolele soon but honestly I'm more into the vintage models. :shaka:

I got a banjolele from Dave back in April and the uke is incredible.

Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3_-KOgZetQ&fmt=22)'s a video of me doing a quick song with it and some closeups of the uke as well if you're interested. :shaka:

I've had a hankering for a banjolele ever since I saw my first George Formby movie in the 1950s. Now I play ukulele, it seems the perfect addition to my collection.

I really love these banjoleles, Dave! I saw psesinkclee's video, and fell in love with them even more.

Got a lot done today!

Concert (as before) on the left, tenor on the right. I must say, I kinda like the proportions of the tenor one...

Wow Dave, you sure know how to call a bluff -- and in style at that!! :D

I am impressed! You have to let me know the price because I feel honour bound to buy one after hounding you for so long to do so! I've wanted one for a while, so I can't let this opportunity to pass me by...

That tenor one looks fantastic Dave!

Any chance you'll be making any soprano-sized tamboleles any time soon?

You can't have it. It's MINE!

Mwaaaaah ha ha ha!!!

Oops. Sorry. But it's mine. Allllll mine!

The one that sold today is headed my way: #89 with a chestnut neck/head and rosewood fretboard. (Thanks, Dave! Is it too early to be sitting by the mailbox, waiting? :D)

By the way, if you're interested in one of Dave's banjolele's, check out the review in Ukulele Player, issue 6, on page 15 (http://www.tricornpublications.com/issue6.pdf).
