Strumming away on my 'uke when the doorbell rings...great excitement and anticipation as I know the Bean Sprout is somewhere between Colorado and Florida...a brisk jaunt to answer the front door hoping it isn't someone on a bicycle handing out free issues of the Watchtower. It's a Bean Sprout Tenor 'Ukulele!!! Yes, Christmas has arrived in Winter Haven. :cool:

That's so cool!
I love the headstock design - nifty 'Beansprout', but stylized, you know?
The shot with the open-back: do you have a pickup installed in that little guy?
I'm replacing the head on my vintage banjolele (never done it before - excited/nervous), so any updates regarding peoples' banjo ukes makes me take notice.

Have fun with it!

John

Yes, Aaron installed a K&K pickup in it for me.
