Luthier David Webber is a great guitar and uke builder up in Canada. Known for using high end woods and quality build-out and this tenor is no exception. It's all highly flamed solid maple, and when I say all, that includes the body, the neck, the fretboard and the bridge. A light maple fretboard is pretty rare on ukuleles, a flamed maple fretboard is almost unheard of. This one is emphasizes the wood with no fret markers on the top, just black dots on the side. Good action, bone nut and saddle and wonderful Gotoh open back tuners with black, maybe ebony buttons. A super clean design where all the "bling" is in the wood grains. The high gloss Cherry-burst finish really turns heads. The back of the neck is satin finish for improved hand movement. This uke is probably unlike any you might currently own. The maple produces a focused sound but the build adds in warmth and great sustain. I've got my sights set on a Farallon sunburst, so a couple ukes need to be moved on. Comes in a nice hardshell case. All this quality and look for under $1000! Please ask any questions or for more photos. Thanks for looking...

I have #1 of 5 from his first build of baritones. Incredible instruments. Lightweight, perfect intonation with a low action fast neck.

For those looking for a great tenor, Webber is one of them. He's getting ready to retire, as soon as his wood supply runs out, so depending on how big it is... He's been building for over 35 years.

Good luck with the sale rhiggie. I'm sure you're going to miss this one.
