Timbers are New Zealand natives and some NZ exotics. The neck is Rimu with a laminate of Ash. The body is Rimu for the top and bottom layers and Ash and Banksia for the middle layer. The bottom capping is ash and Banksia, headstock overlay is banksia. Fingerboard is Pohutakawa. Concert scale.

Thanks for looking
Dennis

Very nice looking banjo uke. I especially like the Banksia on the headstock.

I like the mix of woods on the body, but the headstock is just great! :shaka:

Wow, what a stunning banjo uke! :love:
Do you have a sound sample? I bet it sounds just as lovely as it looks!

Sweet. I like the mix of woods on the rim. Subtle but nice detail

Q. How long does it take to tune a banjo?
A. Nobody knows....

That is about as nice looking as any Banjolele I've ever seen.

I'd love to hear it.

Thank you all for looking. I don't have a sound sample which is probably for the best the way I play:D
