Looks gorgeous, Kaneohe! Congratulations. The Waiolu website is really cool; I haven't read much about them. How long have they been in business?

Nice uke, I wonder how the volume will be with the islands as the pukas. I'm assuming most sound will be from the Big Island? Cheehoo!:music:

The sounds make me think I'm playing a video game. LOL

Nice!!!!!!! I wonder how the PI would look as sound holes. methinks that the archipelago might be too long, thus compromise structure. Would def be a way to stand out tho.

Nice uke man! cant wait to hear it!

i thought about it, and eventually, in the far future, i want a 'ukulele with 'oahu as the soundhole. i think it would make a better looking, more central-looking design.
