That's the new model...14 fret tenor cutaway...with the incredible Sarah Maisel taking possession of it in Anaheim.

Hmmm, just tried it from two different computers and it worked. I wonder if this is one of those things where you have to be on Facebook to get the link to work...

Very nice. I like the jumbo-esque aesthetic.

I have been giving serious thought toward a higher-end ukulele, but had not yet decided which way to go.... I think that I have a new front runner.

Couldn't get the link to work, but stumbled around Facebook and saw it a few posts down on the page. Very very nice!

Adirondack spruce top, tight curl flame maple back and sides, flame maple neck, ebony fingerboard with cantilever, white binding with black/white purfling. It's basically a miniature jazz guitar, but with four strings and a round soundhole plus side port. D-TAR Timberline pickup system with external 18 volt battery power supply (2 x 9 V.).

I love sunburst and I love cutaway...I guess I don't want a uke that everyone else has!

Rick, is this going to become part of your standard line?

I woke up with thoughts of this uke still in my head. Gee, I wonder what I'm getting in the queue for when I finally have some money saved. ;)

It's going to be a regular in our lineup, and the next one will have block pearl inlays and a sunburst finish. MINE! Not inexpensive, though...probably around $3,000.00.

Will the non-sunbursty not-so-blinged out version be a bit less, or is this what we need to be aiming for?

I think that price range is perfectly reasonable.

I have yet to play one of your ukuleles, but from what I have heard through the internet, your tone pretty well overlaps with my taste. Looking at the new body, I have to imagine that this model will be even better aligned with my jazzy sensibilities. I hope that Sarah puts something online quickly so that I can get a taste.

We're going to be co-teaching a beginning jazz uke class at the Asilomar Uke Retreat in a few months; I really look forward to working with Sarah; I think she's one of the best jazz uke players going.

She seems so sweet, as well.

Not to go off topic, but what I have heard from Abe Lagrimas, his jazz chops are excellent.... of course, he is a Berklee alumn, I believe.
