Here's a cute little Favilla I finished up this morning -- great sound, as usual. I figured you guys might like the eye candy... :)

Looks good! Price seems reasonable too, although I'm not really up on values of these old ukes. When filling cracks with glue/ sawdust are you using PVA or hide glue?

PVA -- Titebond Original. Not really necessary in the case of these ones but it does make the head feel better. ;)

Jake does a great job setting up these vintage instruments. I can definitely recommend his stuff!
