Back in December, my husband put down a deposit for a custom Oceana (http://www.oceanaukuleles.com/) ukulele for me, which started in April. A couple of days ago Zac sent me these progress pictures of my super soprano. I am thrilled with the results so far.

I had the fortune to play 4 Oceana ukes at the Denver Uke Fest last year. They were excellent in tone and craftsmanship. Looking forward to seeing this come together.
Congrats.

Thank you. I got to play some at Uketoberfest last fall, and fell in love with how they sound.

It's claro walnut with a western red cedar top.

Yes, Zac is a super nice guy. He is very enthusiastic about what he does and it's been a fun process to work with him in picking out the details. The only problem has been he has so many great ideas, it was hard not ordering three different ukes.

I am sure you will be very happy with your Oceana. I have had my cedar/mango concert since November. The build quality and tone are truly exceptional.

Thanks, Daniel, I'm sure I will, too.

heelnip, it's beautiful! The light colored cedar and the mango really compliment each other well.

+1 been looking at Oceana for a while now. Lovely woods and apparently excellent construction. Yes, please post some sound samples when you can!
