Just watched an Ohana Vita Uke sell for $80 and got to thinking about them. A flash just popped into my head and I envisioned the new:

Ohana Vita Uke Deluxe (think of a Vita Uke version of CK70)

Full Concert body and neck
Geared tuners
Flamed maple back and sides
Solid spruce top, or ???????
Gloss finish
Tortoise Binding

Added:
Offer a Vita Uke Deluxe E with pickup.
Could offer Mahogany version

So UU'ers, what do you think? I sent a note to Ken Middleton. I think I'd have to have one of these a lot more than the standard Vita Uke.

My fantasy Vita Uke is a Dave Talsma Vita (http://www.davetalsma.com/gallery1.php). Scroll to the right to about the 12th uke & you'll see my dreamboat uke.

Why I specified Ohana Vita Uke. How much is that Talsma beauty? I hear his ukes sound super.

lol, a glossy flamed Koa top?
These Ohana Vita's are truly gems though. Look great, Sound great.
Coming with built-in pickups would make it even more ideal for my liking.
