Finally got this ukulele today
My previous custom was also made by the same person. His name is David Aumann
This ukulele is a Solid figured Koa Back sides and top with Mahogany neck. Pretty basic setup. It has L.R Baggs Element active system in it.
It sounds so much better than my 1st custom. More fuller sound. Its amazing!

Here are some pics. I tried to do a few SLR type shots with my brothers gfs D90 but i failed.LOL. ill post a video of how she sounds and review on my youtube channel soon. Cheers.

Wow, that's easily one of the nicest ones I've seen lately. It's really nice looking, but not overly flashy like a lot of customs tend to be. Congratulations.

I got to see him play this on the UU Mini Jam tonight. All I have to say is that he is sooooo worthy of that magnificent ukulele. Nam shreds like Aldrine and Jake.

Very nice. I prefer the wood on your second one but prefer the shape and headstock of your first. Both are beautiful works of art. Mahalo for sharing. :shaka:
