Those are gorgeous Mike. What is the thing in the 3rd picture? The one with the rope purfling, fingerboard center stripe, and bridge pins... That is a SERIOUSLY good-looking ukulele!

Yeah, you really should have!
I saw those Kerry Char ukes in person. They were indeed incredible. Even the building methods were authentic including the French polish and his first attempts at Spanish heel construction. Very cool. He told me the first quote he got to have the decal made was $6,000.........

Yeah... I always seem to be able to pick out the really expensive items in whatever hobby I am interested in. It's one of my skills.

Great pictures, and a wonderful opportunity for those of us who have to live vicariously when it comes to ukes that are also pieces of art. Mahalos for posting!
