Japanese company Crest uke on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370452758216&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:CA:1123#ht_500wt_1156). Seems to be a baritone.

Anyone familiar with this company?

Never heard of Crest. Might be interesting to hear.

Looks like a birch back. Unlike this one, usually those birch instruments came with birch tops as well, and often were laminated (looks like a different wood inside the soundhole). Some of those old birch pieces sounded ok. Although this top looks more like pine than spruce, might they be nicer with the pine soundboard?
