Aloha Kakou,
She's here, my 5 string Custom Concert designed by me built by Willie Wixom. Specs as follows; Spalted Mango top, Milo back and sides, Curly Koa neck, Macadamia fretboard and bridge. Head design idea compliments of Iriguchu Ukuleles (Mahalo Dave for your pemission). Maui bridge designed by me to honor my second home. The Red dot is for Kihei where I reside, the Gold dot is for Maalaea where I caught my first Ulua signified by my Gold pendant inlayed into the headstock.
My "D" hole carried over from my Wixom Tenor (another design by me).
Her voice is amazing as attested by Danny (Kanaka916) but I can't do a sound sample....sorry...............Bo.........

No sound sample and not even any pics? Isn't that against the rules? :rulez: ;)

Hey Burton, Is that a low and high G? If yes I'll bet it sounds amazing. Beautiful uke you have there as I've already seen the pics on FB.

That is an awesome ukulele.

I'd still like to hear it.

I drew it out on a cardboard so Willie could use it as a template. Then I asked him to carve in the valleys with a dremel, showed him a pix of Maui to see the details of the mountains....
