Awesome. That's a fantastic looking uke, and it seems a good time was had by all.

You're a good dude.

I love the little look into your workshop, the building process and the fact that we get to see the actual result in action. Nice stuff, thank you for sharing.

Does that tenor look big or is it just me? Perhaps Sam's just not a very big guy?

Pete, pass my congrats to Sam for a fantastic first build. I must say it does look bigger than a tenor, none the less a beautiful instrument with a great tone.

Sam is quite slim - typical kid body wise. He posts on this forum and is a really interesting young lad. The body dims are 12.125" long and 8.875" at the widest and 3.25" deep. I'd say that is about average.

What d'ya think of the sound folks? I think it's a stunner...

Kaneohe til the end
