Wow, that ukulele sounds great...even with the not-pristine audio from the video! Bet it sounds just incredible in real life! You've seriously triggered my UAS for a myrtle Mya-Moe.

Myrtle is great but you really have to 'select' it. It bends like plastic but can also be quite 'flimsy'. First uke I build from it collapsed...

Looks awesome. How do you like the soprano with a concert scale?
When do we hear a sound clip???

Yup Pete is right as usual. You have to make sure that the set is up to the task. I think it has the warmth of mahogany but the punch of koa. Also, the concert neck on the soprano body makes for a unique hybrid sound. Here is the first video of it, I know its hard to hear above the singing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7j4xmB_7qVE
