Hello!

I'd like to introduce my newest project. I call it Ukule Le Manouche because it is inspired by the guitars of Maccaferri and Di Mauro. It has a spruce top and laminated sides and back (like the original Selmer guitars).
Here a picture with a Concert Jumbolele, the Concert Ukule Le Manouche and a Soprano Jumbolele:

Very nice - I like those f-holes. What radius did you use for the top of the "gypsy"?

Thanks! The top has a 6 m radius. The f-holes are "borrowed" from a violin (Santo Seraphin) because I don' like the style of the f-holes on a Di Mauro. They seem to me like a joke.

Indeed, it looks as if they let the apprentice do the f-holes and he put the template upside-down ;)
