WOOOW!!! that's amazing mate...the wood grain is unbelieveable...love the fish and seahorse inlays..it's just perfect. Beautifully designed...binding fits great..awesome work around the soundhole. Congratulations 52b, brilliant job...where is Bruce Wei based? Along with Sukie's, I reckon that's the nicest custom I've seen since I joined the UU!!! Happy strummin and a pickin!!!!!

Thanks folks. Bruce is in Vietnam so the uke came slack stringed so I'm working on keeping it in tune for a few days but I will try to do a song with it in a few days. It's all solid Koa wood. The neck is mahogany with a rosewood fingerboard. The inlay is hand done not CNC machine. Bruce Wei makes excellent ukes and so does Taisamlu (I have 2 of his) but stay away from Anitoniosai I had one from him but I luckily sold it. It was ok but didn't sound very good.
