    Default NUD: Cripple Creek Mandolins Torrefied Adirondack soprano

    2A942E2F-F4E5-4DBF-9977-40FEC58ACD5E.jpgI saw a beautiful tear drop ukulele being posted by David from cripple creek and I was smitten. I asked him to build one with a different set of woods and a stauffer head stock. We settled on torrefied Adirondack with Spanish cedar and herringbone trim.
    It looks amazing and sounds even better!!

    Nice. I literally just got an email from David that my teardrop is in the works now. I'm going to post a thread about it with WIP pics and details about what I asked for later today.

    That's a really cool looking uke.
    It's also one of those that people not in the know wouldn't even think was a uke. It'd be one of those "What is that? mandolin maybe?" kinda things I think. I actually like that. Unique.

    It's a teardrop uke. I believe inspired by the old Favilla teardrops.
