Aloha Everyone,

I am very excited to say that I have my first Ukulele that is ready for sale.

The name of it is KT-RJBJR-0004 ( Kasha Tenor, made by me, # 4 ).
I call it the Koi tenor for short.

This Ukulele was finished today 11/27/08 after working on it for about 2 months.

Here is a little info about it.
Sound board, Back board, Sides, and Head cap = Koa
Neck= Sapele Mahogany
Braching system = Modified Kasha Schneider
14th fret neck/body connection, 18 frets total
17 3/32'' Scale ( Tenor )
Gotoh SGM Mini tuners Chrome with MoP buttons
Aquila ( High G all nylgut ) Strings.
Inlay material = Curly Maple, Rosewood, Koa, and Sand ( yes, I said sand ).
Here are some pictures, I hope you guys like them.

Nice looking work Bob. Although I couldn't attend the UGH show this year I saw pictures of a couple of your ukes. Expect to see bigger and better things from you in the future!
Aloha, Chuck
