Just got my newest, new to me uke, a tenor built by David Ingalls at Ono Ukuleles. (www.onoukuleles.com) I love it. Itís the best uke Iíve ever owned. If you follow the threads here on UU, you might recognize it. Itís passed through a couple of owners before finding its forever home with me. Here are some of the specifics: solid quarter sawn cherry Fluke-style body, carbon fiber reinforced Honduras mahogany neck, Rosewood fretboard and bridge, string through bridge design with carbon fiber bridge plate, bone saddle and nut, ebony and Red Mallee burl rosette, and an oil finish. The next is super thin and the sound is loud and clear.

Glad to see this one is still in the UU family. I might have a concert version in the works - haven't finally decided on body shape yet

Congratulations! I bet it sounds great. The more ukes I own the more I realize how exceptional the build quality is on Ono ukes. They are unbelievably clean. Enjoy it. I know you will.

Congrats Paul ! Yes, that is an awesome uke. Nice to hear it found a forever home.

You've got to try a low g on it someday.

Already got a new set, just haven't put them on yet. I know those low notes are going to just boom out of that big body.

Wow, congrats! It's a very interesting shape, is it loud? I like the way you can stand it up without a stand....our Flea did that, but we sold it. Yours has a flat back, looks much easier to hold.
