Mike is most certainly making new ukes - mine arrived several weeks ago and it's been near impossible to put it down! The move didn't happen as planned and he is still in Berkeley. He just revamped his website, take a look here (http://www.ukemaker.com/ukemaker.php).

I checked out that DaSilva uke pictured at Summer NAMM 2012. It was in the Takumi Ukulele Co. booth, and it was hands-down the nicest ukulele I've encountered yet. It was light as a feather, and loud as heck. It was the only uke I played at the NAMM show that I could hear over all the noise on the convention floor. I hated having to put it down and walk away. :(

A few weeks ago I did a 3 Questions Interview with Mike to catch up with him. You can see the video on my website in the 3 Questions archive.
