Hello UU, it's a great day in our house as the sound of our new Jackie & Joe Mahogany Tenor rings through the air! Some of you may have seen our thread (Build Thread: Mahogany Tenor Ukulele (http://www.acousticguitarforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=340567)), but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to post this NUD thread (these days NUD/NGD threads don't come around very often).

This is our very first instrument build. It's a pretty emotional day for my wife Jackie and I as we celebrate our 1-year wedding anniversary this week. This uke build was a challenge we decided to take on together, and we learned so much about each other along the way. Our hearts will forever ring through the beauty of the sound out of this instrument. :)

Here's are the specifications and the pictures:
- Solid mahogany top, back, sides and neck
- Rosewood fretboard & headplate
- Custom "Carabao Horn" rosewood pin bridge w/ rosewood bridge pins (two with abalone inlays)
- Custom inlays of urunao beach sand on the headstock, rosette and fretboard markers
- Black plastic binding and tail piece
- Bone nut and compensated bone saddle
- Grover 18:1 "gun metal" geared tuners
- Satin TruOil finish
