The 16 inch scale is very appealing to me Dave. Hows the volume on this beauty?

A video or sound sample might push me over the edge, David....any chance of that?

10-27-2013, 01:37 PM
Would, that I could, but I can't. :(

David it is a real beauty. I really shouldn't but if is still around after the first I might. Curious what is the width at the neck? Also how thick is the fingerboard? I'm finding I prefer playing (such as it is) on ukes that tend to have fingerboards on the thinner end of the spectrum - have to measure some day. Thanks reply in thread or pm.
