View Full Version : NUD: Sailor Brand blue label spruce/tamarind custom

Just got my custom Sailor Brand concert from Mike at Uke Republic (and some free peanut butter M&Ms, a kazoo and a hard case -gotta love Mike!) I love it. Will do a review soon. Here's a little ditty:


It's got a really bright sound from the spruce. I think it's going to be my go to ukulele for folk songs as it has a lovely almost acoustic folk guitar sound.

I'll try and post some photos later. The figured tamarind on the back is absolutely stunning.

Mike is an absolute star. He makes buying an ukulele a special experience.

I'm glad that ukulele worked out for you and thanks for sharing it, brother Matty. I have often thought of a sailor ukulele, but in the back of my mind I always suspected that, with my luck, I'd get the longshoreman on weekend leave in my shipping box.
