    Congrats on your new baby. It reminds me of a William King soprano. Have fun!

    Wow... these Wunderkammer Ike sopranos sound fabulous!

    How is the intonation up the neck?

    I really like the extended fingerboard.

    I am very close to adding my name to the waiting list for one of these!

    That's an interesting combo. I'd be interested to see and hear it once it is completed.

    I notice on his website, there's a link to what he calls "various one-offs" of the Ike, and on one of those, called the "Rosetta" (a Weissenborn-style soprano), if my eyes don't deceive me it appears that, instead of a traditional bone or plastic saddle piece, he actually has a fret imbedded across the bridge; I'm not sure if I'm seeing that correctly, or if it's commonplace and I just wasn't familiar with it?

    I remember looking at this luthiers web page a few month ago.
    The soprano is imo. by far the most attractive model he makes. Perhaps my taste in ukes is very traditional, but while I am sure they are all excellent ukes, this one has the looks too. Congrats on the new uke!

    A good thing that I dont play soprano, so I dont get tempted.
