I'm looking for a custom concert or tenor (heck, make it any size uke) with quality luthier custom eye candy inlay work done on the fingerboard or around the sound hole(s). Any out there let me know. Budget is not an issue.

thx,
JTSC

You seem to be describing Chuck Moore's work.

I'm open to both those luthiers (and many others)!

I don't know if I would let it go, but is this the kind of thing you are talking about?

It sure sounds as good as it looks. It has a chunkier neck, kind of like vintage Gibson tenors, but light and perfectly balanced, and quite pretty. Whenever I have done work for others, and I play a few different instruments for them, they always choose this one. Is it because it sounds the best, maybe that too, but I always thought it was getting extra marks for beauty...
PM me if you want to start a discussion. I have only occasionally toyed with the idea of letting it go, but if it is exactly what you are looking for, and budget is not an issue, it could help pay for something else I want.
