Hi Y"a'll...well, I've well and truly gone over to the dark side of UAS! I'm having several "projects" built. The first true ukulele is this from a builder on Ebay named Jay gilliam AKA Tinyguitars on Youtube. He specializes in cigar box guitars, ukuleles, mandolins, dulcimers , etc at very reasonable prices. His web site is http://tinyguitars.tk . Here is the first pic of the ukulele I'm having him build!

I'll give the specs as it gets further along, but the neck is brazilian cherry with a sycamore fretboard. The cigar box is a really deep example for rich tone, and it will be acoustic/electric! More pics added here soon! :D

Very cool. I watch all of his videos when he announces new instruments and I usually like what I see.
