    Thanks Hodge. I have an old beat up Gianinni 19" baritone and it is very versatile from DGBE up to GCEA and all stops in between. So yes this one will be fun to experiment with

    Next for Luis to build me..........maybe a small classical guitar/ large guilele type instrument. Something with a 48mm nut width, radiused fretboard, 23"- 24" scale length on an appropriately sized body. I received a Romero Creations baritone guilele with 20" scale and really enjoy it. Something a bit bigger would be perfect. With my standard tenor, this super tenor and a baritone I got the LfdM ukulele scene covered.
    Ukuleles.............yes please !!!!

    Congratulations Dave. The more I looked at your pictures, the most impatient I became. I can't wait to try it out when I come visit you.

    I can't agree with you more about the shape of the bridge. Now the bridge matches the rest of the instrument.

    Thanks Joseph, I look forward to you playing this in comparison to my standard tenor. They both sound like a LfdM, different woods different tone. Luis likes this bridge as well and said he will probably incorporate something similar going forward

    This forum never ceases to make my mouth water. I feel like a penniless man at a buffet.

    Awesome acquisition, Dave. It sure looks a beauty. Send us a soundclip so we can really be jealous.

    Thank you. It gives me a lot a pleasure to admire the beautiful woods and craftmanship. Yesterday I was rockin' out on a Kala super soprano and having a ball. Playing uke, no matter the cost of the instrument puts a smile on my face. But thank you for the compliments

    Thanks a lot Adam I appreciate the comments. You have to come over and try it out, someone that can really play needs to strap this on.
    Bring your new acquisitions over as well.

    Congratulations Dave. Another winner from LfdM. Truely gorgeous! With the extra body volume I bet it sounds wonderful. Definitely a case of the sum of the parts being greater than the whole.
