Simply stunning !!!- The pictures of the ukuleles are exquisite, I wish I lived closer to look at them in real life. Unfortunately I'll have to drool over the photos

Quick question, are all these ukes strung Low G or High G, or mix of both?

Is there any possible videos or sound clips for the High G ones?

Stunning work as always, Eric (:

I like how the binding on the 12th fret is different...makes it really easy to spot for the player!!

I could definitely afford but I would be sleeping in the doghouse for a very long time. hehehe

They are all low G except the maple super concert which is high G.
I was going to have Kimo Hussey come over and do some more videos but he couldn't make it till next week and the new owners of these ukes are in a bit of a hurry to get them.
I will do some videos on the next batch for sure, should be around the end of this year.

Your instruments in one word are stunning.

Eric,
Please don't take this the wrong way , but I want to sniff your sound holes! Rosewood mmmmm :)

They look truly stunning with superb selection of timber from what I can see. I assume they sound as good as the look. As a matter of interest why so many low G? Your choice??

Congratulations :drool:

Wow Tack, we hardly know each other!!!
I have always been a big fan of the low G. I just think is offers a wider variety of playing and just makes the instrument sound "bigger" than it is.

Well, I'm sure a couple have ended up that way, but these are player ukes. I take great pride in the setup and playability of these ukes. And, I love seeing them come back for a "tune up" and the frets are grooved and worn. Nothing makes me happier than to see that they are getting played and played often.

Absolutely beautiful photos of beautiful instruments.
I checked the Devine website and read about the Tonerite device that speeds up breaking in an instrument. I'd never heard of this, and I never had a clear idea of the principles involved in breaking in an instrument. I guess this device 'plays' the instrument while one sleeps.

These all look horrible and not fit for sale. Since I'm a nice guy, I'll gladly take them all off your hands at no charge.

...Really though, I definitely want to try one of these out one day. I've played a lot of Kasha style guitars but never a uke!
