    That's a beautiful uke. I'm not in the market to buy another right now, but I'm glad to see one out of Russian Olive. I have some RO from a tree that was on my grandfather's cattle ranch that I am planning on using to make a soprano or maybe concert out of soon. I really like the look of the wood, but had never seen an example of it being used for an ukulele. I'm glad to hear it bends well.

    Beautiful uke, however not a fan of geared tuners on a soprano. Different strokes for different folks. Good luck with the sale!

    I have a Black Bear soprano (koa, 2010), and it's an excellent, wonderful instrument. Perfect action, string-through bridge, lovely sound. In my opinion, they are at least as a good as most sopranos costing two or even three times as much.

    Very good looking uke. I too was not familiar with this wood. Very red in color. Really nice.
