The uke I bought from tattwo arrived yesterday, and since it is rather special, I wanted to share it with you. It's a myrtlewood concert pineapple built by tattwo himself. Pictures are below. Also, I've made a terrible, terrible recording, full of background noise that is probably at least partly the fault of the fact that I live near a freeway (though I also need to learn to use Audacity properly). The music in the recording is an improvisation and therefore contains its fair share of hesitations and flubbed notes, but it should give you some idea of what tattwo hath wrought. (There's also some buzz, but I think that's because the poor little uke is currently startled at finding itself in such a cold, dry environment. I shall get it its very own humidifier, and it will be much happier.)

The fifth of the pictures below shows the pineapple with my Classic concert and my Lanikai tenor. The pineapple's scale length is actually in between the two.

The terrible recording is here:
