Well, it's time for a few days off. Just finished a batch of 7 ukes including a new model tenor yet to be named. Here is a few shot I took this afternoon before I drop them off tomorrow.
I'm always sad to see them go...

Few if any sound samples on youtube for your ukes. It would interesting to hear some. They certainly look great.

Thanks guys. 6 of them are going to Puapua and the one with the vine inlay is staying with me... at least for a while. I will be recording an album with Kimo Hussey (uke jazz master) within a month or two and need a tenor for recording with.
Here's (http://devineguitars.com/htmlContent/mp3.html) some recordings if you like hear 'em.
And here's a few more shots.

I know with the exchange rate from Australian to American dollar, it's like they are half price from about a year or so ago!
As I told other members from Australia, I would love to hand deliver some ukes down there just so I can go visit again!
I love your country and can't wait to go back for a holiday.

True, Puapua is an incredible store! They have been very good to me for many years and I love working with them.
I will be dropping these ukes off around noon on Saturday if anyone wants to come down and say "hi".

OMG, amazing ukes.
Some mahogany?
Here in Brazil, mahogany is the most stable wood for the only two uke luthiers whe have.
And I have only solid koa ukes yet...
