    Full review coming, I promise, but for now I will sum it up as: if you can, buy one! :-)

    About two months out from my build date, Aaron sent me pictures of 4-5 different specific pieces of wood. He said if any of those weren't what I was looking for, he would send some more. As it was, I totally fell in love with the wood that you see there.

    At about a month out from start of build, all of my choices for other options were "locked in" and he got to work. The end result looks amazing.
    Firstly congrats on a beautiful ukulele. Aaron's process with you sounds amazing. How wonderful to be given the choice of so many woods, etc! Wow :-)
