Is William still building instruments? His site has not been updated in awhile.

He moved last year and I think he wasn't taking orders for this calendar year.

I think at some point he said he was going to drastically slow down his building (or discontinue it altogether) because of some other business venture. That's really too bad for the ukulele community. I have played a couple of his ukes and they are top notch--really excellent instruments

From what I understand, unfortunately for the uke community - he couldn't make a living building instruments ... so he went back to work full time.

I bet lots of people would still willing to order from him even if he has a price raise.

BUMP. Mod pointed me to this thread as I had posted the same, having one of his custom scale instruments. Anyone ever find out any contact info for Mr. King. What a shame he's offline. Maybe he'll resurface in 2014 but if anyone knows a good email or phone, please pm me. I'm looking for an article he did on it but it's no longer on line and there is no cached history in sites like the wayback machine so I'm looking for that article from 2010 I believe.
