Wow, just wow. I took a punt on this uke, the seller didn't know what the uke was made of and had really not so great pix, i simply bought it because of the MP name and a feeling i had. But when it arrived, oh my, it is really stunning to play, just the best uke i have ever played, clear, warm and fingerpicking is just brilliant. Ok, so enough gushing... :)

Can anyone help me identify the wood. I'm thinking walnut and cedar maybe, or perhaps redwood top. really hard to tell but if anyone has a better idea please let me know. I have e-mailed Mike asking him but not heard back as yet.

Thanks... Bill

My guess would be a Redwood top, Claro Walnut back and sides with maple binding. Looks sweet. Nice score!

He shoots, he SCORES!!! (Crowd goes wild!).

My experience is Mike does respond but it may take a few days. If you provided the serial number he should be able to get you all the details.

I know, talk about score, should be sore, as in fingers. I can't stop playing it! Really a stunning uke. As my lovely wife is happy to point out, I have on occasion purchased a uke unplayed off the web and been underwhelmed, this time made up for all the not so great experiences. I guess trusting in a really reputable builder gets rid of a lot of the stress.

WOW you scored huge...........and you didn't even have to chase down the postee.

Now I am really looking forward to you coming to Toronto and getting a chance to play that. I love red wood tops and that walnut is stunning, maple binding.......brilliant. If I was to have one made those wood choices would make me very happy. Enjoy it, like I really have to say that :rolleyes:
