I'm holding a custom mahogany concert uke that Donna LoPrinzi made for me. It has their older, larger sized concert body, a twelve fret ebony fingerboard, peghed tuners and a MiSi pickup (photo below). Amanda is holding a custom concert in the "stromy" black to gray sunburst finish over figured maple. You get a closer look at the uke Amanda is holding in this thread (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?38078-From-LoPrinzi-s-custom-shop).

I was my daughter who got me hooked on ukulele & it has been a great bond for us as we learn new songs together. I love this photo & love all that it says about family.

Oh... and I LOVE that "stormy" concert!
