There's an online interview with Mike DaSilva of DaSilave Ukuleles. I don't think it's been posted here yet so here it is. I found it to be very interesting.

I saw Mike the day he posted this and told him it was a great video. His playing is pretty darn good on it too.

Thanks for sharing, that was really cool. He really does put love into each piece he makes. Makes me want to invest into a da silva custom in a few years from now.

im not if it was this one, or a different one, but when i first met Mike, me and JP walked in when he was talkign about ukuleles. and they were filming him shape the neck and what not. it was nice. great find.

*edit* correction. this was the interview that me and JP came in on. they actually asked us a few questions with Mike.

I drool over those DaSilva Santo reproduction ukes. I'm kind of giving up on sopranos for now, but that Santo reproduction is definitely something I'd love to have one day.

Those of you who actually gets to visit Mike DaSilva's workshop are soooo lucky!

I second all of that. I wish I lived near his shop! and that Santo reproduction uke sounds AMAZING!

also... that fish uke is super cool. If i had that, I'd be the happiest man alive.

No kidding! You probably got to play a lot of his ukes like that fish uke and Santo reproduction. I wouldn't say "hate", but I'm damned jealous!:mad::D
