    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Thank you for re-posting the great pictures!

    I have to admit a little disappointment because I thought you were announcing a new run of concert ukuleles. (hint, hint)

    I decided that making lots of different style uke's was too much for me co's i'm a lazy retired old git.. and I decided to stick to what I know best, and just build a few sopranos when I felt like it.

    So I passed on all the Concert size jigs molds and bender to another Luthier to find a new home for them..and I don't know where they are now.

    I understand that completely, even if it shatters a tuesday afternoon flight of fancy

    Thanks for the reply and explanation.

    So, a Ken Timms concert uke would be a rare bird indeed! How many are out there? Does anyone else here on UU have one?

    This is good to hear. When I read, back on page 8(?) that you were going to clean out your workshop and “throw a bunch of stuff out” I nearly fell out of my chair. I assure you that your junk would certainly be a new builder/luthier’s treasure.

    Ken,
    Just finished reading through this startlingly magnificent tour through the rebuilding of this ukulele.
    All I can really say is, Thanks! I am sure I shall be returning to it many times.
