    Thanks for your kind words! Here's a quick sound sample, sorry for phone quality: https://youtu.be/PN0RnqXsAbA

    Can I ask where in the world you are? Then I quote the shipping cost and/or the price in your currency. We can continue chatting by PM if you prefer to not share that publically.

    Curious as to what kind of finish you use? Also, how long is your turnaround and waiting list?

    I use shellac. Each instrument is approximately 4 months from order to completion.

    I suspect that someone got a bargain, well the 200 price I saw in your original post seemed far far too little for the work involved. Your website doesn’t quote prices, if you showed more about the Ukes that you build there and your prices then I believe that you’d get a lot of interest. Some very skilled work shown on your website.

    If it’s OK I have two questions about the build.
    # the frets are barely visible to me in your photos, what are they made of, how are they installed, what’s the historic reasons, etc?
    # the bridge arrangement is different to what I’m used to seeing. I’m wondering how the strings are attached and where they ‘break’ on the bridge.

    Thanks in anticipation of your answers, I hope that you don’t mind me asking.
