I had my eye on this one for quite a while, and I decided I'd better buy it before someone else did. As many of you know, Southern Cross ukes are made by Dennis O'Neill, in New Zealand. It is named after the fantail bird, a very popular species in New Zealand. I received it just seven days after I ordered it, while I'm still waiting over two weeks for a uke from Florida!

It's made of Tasmanian blackwood, purple heart, and claret ash. It looks and feels great in person, and it has a very warm sound. This will be a keeper!

Lucky you. Wish I had the money. I'd buy that banjo uke he's selling.

Nice! I really like the purple heart. The shape, including the soundhole is very pleasing to my eye. Enjoy!

Terrific looking uke. I love the simple lines of the design and the woods are lovely.

Nice to know they sound good too. Have fun with it.
