Well, I have corrupted another guitar player. I met Michael Watts at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival this summer where I was exhibiting for the first time. He had flown in from the UK to play a concert and give a workshop at the festival. Michael is known throughout the acoustic guitar community as a connoisseur of modern lutherie and has played all over the world, often demonstrating the work of some of the biggest names in modern guitar building such as Ervin Somogyi, Jason Kostal and Brent McElroy. This is his first composition on the ukulele, and it is called "Ukulele Nocturne."
I am very honored that Michael will be using one of my ukes on his album.

In this video, Michael is playing a Hive Ukulele made with an Adirondack Spruce top and Wenge back and sides.
