    Wow, this is a very different ukulele! It's exciting to see something that isn't the run-of-the-mill thing. It makes me wish I needed another uke.

    Thanks for the link. I always enjoy learning about trees. I'm a retired arborist, but have never seen a mahogany tree, as they don't grow here (in the States).
