With the US 'lecture tour' going ahead I am working on France, Germany and Finland - if you are interested and want to connect with others attending these events then please find my group on facebook. My Finnish intern arrives in a month's time and there will be a detailed video log of the preparation of 20 kits - should be fun to watch as we plough ahead in batch production mode. I have at last managed to jig everything so I do not need a specialist workshop - a true kitchen table build even involving precision drilling with a simple jig and cordless drill. If you are at all apprehensive about attending one of these just pm me and I'll go through in detail the skill levels involved and what you will get out of it. A video published on Youtube says it all when Eric Johnson spronounces - 'It's nearly as good as a Howlett :)' - Eric came all the way from Hong Kong to attend the build in Finland...

Remember the tour start at the Ukulele World Congress in Indiana, moves to LA and then finishes in Atalanta... Still a few spots left. Also I hope to get clearance from Mike at mainland to have my kits available for purchase and order and should have as my personal uke, a Tenor harpuke with me.

That sounds so exciting. May they greet you everywhere like a blend of a sage and a rockstar!
