    Thanks for posting link. Great pod cast. Nice to see Aaron visiting. He sold me my first Uke from main store many years ago when I was in Hawaii. Great bunch at HMS, real people, great service. I loved all the high end tenors. Guess only budget and playing would help me decide. Ha ha

    It sure is Hodge.

    I had the pleasure of playing this ukulele before Luis sent it out. It is unique and I will shed some light on this.

    It is made with the large baritone LfdM body. Much larger then a normal baritone, almost tenor guitar size. The customer asked for a 19” scale length (LfdM baritones come standard with 22-1/4” scale length). It was also specified that the instrument be able to be strung like a tenor GCEA. With different strings you can go down to DGBE and anywhere in between.

    I was quite impressed with all of them.

    Really intrigued with the Pigeon Tree Spruce Ebony.

    Anybody have a tulip wood instrument where the color has aged to the darker "chocolate' color they talked about?

    The Hive was lovely sounding.

    I had tulip wood lamination in a longbow some years ago.....really beautiful wood. Under the clear fiberglass it did not fade very much but it was not as bright as the ukulele shown.
