    My James Hill DaSilva is one of my favorites. It is from the same wood set as Jamesí original instrument.
    I got to play on stage with him many years back, matching ukuleles, it was a real experience.

    For a five-year old uke, it's in fantastic condition. Naturally, it sounds great. Now I'll be able to play like James Hill. I might not sound like him, but I'll be playing a similar instrument.

    Beautiful! Would love a sound sample.
    That looks like a special ukulele.

    The top is Adirondack spruce top, and the rest is koa. Uke #58 will arrive on Tuesday. I received this one from HI in two days, but the one from LA is taking seven days. I have four up for sale, so I hope someone buys them. Then I hope to pick out more I can bear to part with.

    I think this is a pretty accurate display.
