    Default NUD (Englemann Spruce Top - Brazillian Back, Sides with Sound Port)

    Very Nice Ukulele - Bright Sound, crisp, lots of clarity. Strung with Craig Brandau Custom Savarez set Low G. Love the sound port, adds the brightness that I was looking for when playing. Brian had this RW for years, decided to build a uke. Ebony radius finger board , flamed maple binding, Well Worth the wait. www.griffinukukleles.com

    Man oh Man that is beautiful. I love how he book matched the back with the lighter colour in the middle. Much more classy looking than the usually sap wood white strip. The rosette looks interesting, can you do a close up picture. I am guessing it sounds as good as it looks, which is pretty spectatular. Congratulations on a gorgeous ukulele.

    Very nice!
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    Woah, very nice looking uke! Darn you, you got my UAS aroused again, just as I was entering a recovery stage. Not sure I would have placed that big ol g at the top, in cursive it might have looked nicer (to me) but that is some awesome looking wood in the back, and I love the contrasting neck and headstock!....congratulations, you must like it a lot! Nice that it came with a side sound port, how does it sound?
    You should post some more pics on the Uke Porn thread for us to drool at!

    Beautiful ukulele. I hope it sounds as great as it looks!

    There's a typographical error in your link to the Griffin Ukuleles website. Here's the correct one.
