I recieved my new Compass Rose tenor from Gryphon!

Stanford fence redwood top with a beautiful sap stripe, bubinga back and sides with
"bees wing" figure that shimmers in the sunlight.

Congratulations! I wondered where that ended up. Looking forward to a video so I can hear that former fence.

Congratulations! I was lucky enough to play that one at Gryphon, and it sounds as stunning as it looks. One of the main reasons I didn't buy it is that I'd just bought a walnut CR tenor. I'm glad it's gone off to a good home. Happy strumming!.

That's a fantastic looking uke! I have to say I'm very curious how the former fence sounds. (I'm really thinking about getting a redwood-topped tenor.)

Nothing quite like well aged wood! That fence was reputed to be about 50 or 60 years old.

Hello Rick, I have to tell you I am just thrilled with this uke!!!
It is my first compass rose uke, but I can promise you it won't be my last compass rose uke!

Fantastic, and thanks for joining the club!

As many of you know, we do a lot of our own wood sawing here, and I love locally sourced woods. Having that 20 HP resaw has made a lot of wood available to us that just wouldn't come our way unless we could deal with it. I've now got some quarter logs of black acacia that is too big for my saw, so it's going to be chain saw time around here. These came from a tree that was a good 36" in diameter, and each piece weighs about 200 lbs. The black acacia came to the US from Tasmania and mainland Australia in the 1880s and took very nicely to the California coastal climate. It is, of course, a close relative of koa.
