Hello everyone !

Here's my latest ukulele (#7), that I made for a friend's friend. She wanted it to be sunny, and she likes children, so there it is.

Not very sunny here in Paris, though, so the light is a bit dull. Anyways, the pictures will give you an idea of how it looks.

Cherry top-back-sides, spanish cedar neck, indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, purpleheart headplate and bindings, ceylon satinwood, bloodwood and bois de rose inlays.

Tru-Oil finish and worth brown strings.

By the way, the "drawing" on the back is not drawn, it's inlaid (.6mm black and green purflings)

And here's a sound sample (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x22dkax_soprano-sunnylele_music)

A nice looking uke. I especially like the sound hole decoration/binding. It also sounds great. Do you know how many hours you spent making this?

Très jolie! Nice curl in the wood, and I like your many little special bits that you've added, particularly the headstock design.
