Tom Guy at Bluegrass Ukuleles makes amazing tenor Redwood Cigar Box ukes. Check out his Youtube channel. (http://www.youtube.com/user/Bluegrassukes)

Here's mine:

You can get any type of tuners on it you want. I believe the machine tuners he uses are Gotoh.

I'm thinking of selling my Papa's Boxes uke, actually.

It's a concert w/ geared tuners. Strings are Worth browns.

It's a good instrument, but I hardly ever play it, 'cause the neck's a bit wide for my amazingly short fingers...

PM me if you'd be interested.

I would also recommend Tom Guy of Bluegrass ukes. I'm really enjoying mine. There are pictures here:

Mine has the Gotoh geared tuners.
