See the later posts for modifications to this uke.....

Here is one of Benjamin Cram's creations. He goes by the Three Cedars Ukulele Company and lives in Seattle Washington. It is a unique build as the top bout is built from a solid piece of wood that has been jig'd out. The bottom bout is built from five separate pieces with copper sides. Ben cracked the top when he was putting it together but repaired it during construction so it has been done right.

Please note the modifications I just made to this uke in the posts below. I couldn't figure out how to delete these photos since they are attachments.... But you now have the before and after photos.

I'd like $275 shipped to lower 48.

How does it sound? Here is Ben playing it:

I made some modifications to this uke. I added some Grover geared tuners which are a dream compared to the pegs and a K&K big spot pickup. Here are the updated photos:

Since the pegs were so high on the headstock, I had to grind down the tuners and drill new holes to attach the top two. I used some of that silver tape you use to tape your ducts onto the air conditioning unit or your drier hose to the dryer to cover up the existing holes in the tuners. It works...
I almost got the pickup centered, my drill walked a little so it isn't perfect but neither am I.

Nice innovation, by the way!
