I was hoping to meet you at Rick's shop (about a week ago 6/22), I was there looking at/picking out the wood for my build (adi spruce/cherry back and sides; Inv. #4276). I really admire the looks and craftsmanship of your Hive ukulele's. Maybe someday down the line?!

Hawaii 50, what did you order? Mine is an Adi top with cherry back and sides like I said earlier in the thread. To compensate for the plain looking spruce top I'm having Rick spray it black and then adding white bindings with abalone purfling around the body and headstock. Also doing a small inlay in the fretboard.

Dang! That should look nice!:) I got mine a few months back and I strung it up last week with Ken's Living Water strings. Totally sounds amazing. I'm going to post a video review soon. Compass Rose ukulele are superb in every way. It really has the tonal qualities of a guitar. Projects like a beast, and you can really hear every string ring. Mine was pretty custom, and the more I compare it to other brands, the I fall deeper I fall in love with it. Hey Len, did you get your's yet? Can't wait to see your Koa! And thanks to you Jake helping build my ukulele. What's better than one ukulele master building your uke? Well, having two masters build it.

i saw the koa one on the website on monday..sometimes i think they take them off and do the sound recordings on them..if you can go see in person .. the koa one is much nicer than the photos can produce..darker and curly very tight..can not be seen in the pictures...and the mahogany really nice..go drive down you wont be dissaapointed..unless they sold them already..lol

i just went to gryphon website 5 pm pacific time and i see the koa compass rose there..style B gloss finish upgrade..
but no picture of the mahogany..if you are looking for mahogany..hard to beat this...

Are you going to the Wine Country Ukulele Festival? I think I might be able to pick mine up there if the build stays on schedule, Rick is doing a demo build during the festival. I also just sent a check out for the inlay work getting done on my fretboard (I'm having my family crest 'mon' inlayed in the fretboard - hopefully my five year old will play some day and I can pass it down to him).

@kelliyama - will you have your uke at the Roy Sakuma festival? I'll be at the festival in a couple weeks.

Beautiful ukes. I have a question, so I might as well go right to the source. Jake, or anyone else who might be able to answer them. What type of wood was used for the neck on the Mahogany style C? Do these necks have truss rods in them? I also see that these are now 14 frets to the body, instead of the older 12 frets. Are all of Rick's tenors now made this way?

Thanks in advance.

I have answers.....lol.
The Mahogany C has a flame maple neck at the request of Gryphon, but the necks are usually mahogany, and they have no truss rod. The 14 fret neck is a new option that Compass Rose offers on their tenor ukes. This was actually the first 14 fret tenor ever made at the shop. The original neck is 12 frets to the body. Excellent questions dkcrown!

That Style C is the first of our 14 fret tenors on the standard CR body, and it has a figured maple neck. Yes, it's got the carbon fiber reinforcement primarily to support the cantilevered fingerboard. We're also making a 14 fret tenor on a "micro-jumbo" body...a bit larger than our "nano-jumbo", so the line has expanded considerably in the last few months. We also offer radiused fingerboards as an option, and we're doing one of the little jumbos with a cutaway right now...it's like a little jazz guitar and is cute as can be with block inlays in the fingerboard.

The cutaway has an all cherry body...and it's got a light sunburst.

And we're a moving target. Just when you think you know what we do, we add something new. We now have three body styles/sizes, 12 or 14 fret neck tenors in two of those body styles, and 14 fret concerts. We'll do cutaways...for a price...and we'll do radiused fingerboards as well. We're really a custom shop building everything to order, and yes, our wood selection is pretty wide and interesting.

Next year we'll be building a whole lot of ukes out of black acacia, too. I have literally a ton of it here.

Rick, I should probably get on your build list right now. Having my own Rick Turner designed, me assembled pineapple tenor has only whet my appetite for a Compass Rose. Add black acacia to the mix and resistance may be futile!

We're building four more "Stanford Fence" topped ukes for Gryphon plus at least a couple with the Sequoiadendron giganteum...giant Sequoia...some of the most beautiful top wood I've ever had. The tree was 292 feet tall and 30 in diameter at the base when it went down after being alive on this earth for 2,700 years... There's even a book about the story of this tree going down (on its own) and being carefully harvested.

I was just listening to the sound sample at Gryphon really sounded good. I am assuming that is larger than your standard tenor size. Is that a tenor neck on a mini jumbo body as opposed to a tenor body, and were you planning on making more? I have been looking for a tenor with more bass that didn't lose intonation on the notes. The notes sounded clear.
As a side note love this Stanford story and your Bob Hope poolside bar wood story. Recently the sequoia. Great stuff

The Mini Jumbo is actually smaller than the original tenor (the width and depth is about the same, but the length of the body is shorter.)
I also believe the original tenor has a little "more bass" than the Mini Jumbo due to the larger size. Both have more bass than most tenors, and have great intonation up the neck.

I saw that uke and really wanted to buy it, but I foolishly waited a day while I talked myself into spending the money. When I got online to give them a call to make the purchase, it was gone. I learned my lesson, so I was checking Gryphon just about everyday to see what would pop up. I was going to place an order with Rick eventually but figured I would keep an eye out incase something interesting popped up while I saved a bit more and decided on what I wanted.

Well, something did, an all Claro Walnut "B" with an amazing grain pattern, front and back body binding and a gloss finish. I didn't waste anytime and made the purchase, it was online for only 1 day when I saw it. Will be here in a few days, I can't wait!
