    OMG, Jim, that's great. It looks so much like our Tiny Tenor, if it sounds as good, you're gonna love it! Congratulations!

    Thanks. Probably not quite as small but it is a concert body/tenor neck so yeah, similar idea.

    Nice. Can't wait to hear more when you get it!

    Curious about the relative importance of tonewood vs. the luthier? See Luthiers for a Cause to learn more!

    Thanks. It's Claro walnut and Port Ordord Cedar. From videos, I love the sound that CB gets out of myrtle/WRC but that's what my Ono bari is. I asked for something in the same tonal territory but a bit different look and Perry suggested this. Good call. Can't wait to hear it.

    Me too! I don't think they did a sound sample video so I have no idea what it sounds like.

    Now you know why I wasn't biting on yours. ;-) Glad you found a new home for it.

    WHOA.........stop the car!!!!!

    Jim that is one beautiful looking instrument, I love your wood choice. The pineapple concert body with a tenor neck is something I am REALLY interested and intrigued about. It should give close to tenor tone and volume because the body shape and size and it will be a comfortable playing size. Well done.....very very well done
