A limited number of these instruments (12) have been allocated for the US and yes I'll have a few well unless they all get pre ordered.
A few specs- List is $1399.00
Solid spruce top/ solid mahogany back and sides, Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, Peghead and Grover tuners, Custom Fishman AG-Uke P/up
This was designed by UU member Welsh Luthier Pete Howlett and made by aNueNue (Spelled it wrong on the post)

A tremendous instrument and we are truly looking forward to getting these in.

Wow, by the looks of the demo, this will be one difficult instrument to play.

Very interesting resurrection by aNueNue. You have to give them credit for not being afraid to try something new (what with their 1879 retro uke and their U900 model cute ukes). I personally love my aNueNue O'ahu tenor - it really sounds amazing, so if this 'ukuharp is even halfway as well constructed, this will be a high-quality item.

I recently attended a lute performance and noticed they mainly play the lowest strings open like this creature....
...could this have been manufactured simply with a wider neck to accommodate the extra 4 strings?
