    The uke looks great. Its interesting to see how you build and to see your bracing system (on the link).

    It would be good to hear the instrument and decide whether it really sounds much better than standard fan bracing.

    Thanks for yours comments!

    to Chuck in ny: This wood comes from the same woods forest used by Antonio Stradivari. Paneveggio Forest in Val di Fiemme. This spruce grows from 1500 meters up to 1900 meters. This wood called also "Abete di risonanza".
    Each year are cut 4000m3 of this spruce and only 1% is considered "Abete di risonanza". On my website I described better this wood, but at the moment there is only the Italian version.

    to greenscoe: I think this bracing is better than standard fan braced for Tenor ukulele. In my opinion is that it returns a thicker sound with excellent response times. I will make a video soon
