    For a second, I thought I was looking at someone's fingers holding a tiny, intricate ukulele. What is this, a soprano for ants?

    Anyway, amazing uke, even if it's not ant-sized!

    Not sure why it looked so small to you, perhaps the big chair it's on? Anyway, soprano size with concert length neck.
    It's a keeper.

    Lucky you, Tracie, that's beautiful. I'veb heard so much good about them, and thought of getting one. This is nice--vicarious ownership.

    Haha, yeah, for a split second the chair looked like fingers to me.

    Anyway, it looks great. I like the headstock in particular. Classy shape, dark (ebony?) faceplate, UPTs, the frogprint inlay. The fretboard markers are a nice touch as well. That's a beaut!

I have a Blue Frog soprano with a Tiki god inlay on the headstock that I treasure very much. It plays easy and sings out loud easily comparable to the older Martins.
    Would love to see pics of that one if you ever want to share...
