    THey look amazing. How many have you built so far? It's a shame that pics don't carry sound.

    I like the use of peg tuners. I don't see many tenors with them. Are they planetary or friction?

    Andy...

    Thank you Ms Bean! I have build 31 instruments in total and ten of them are ukuleles. Five sopranos and five tenors.

    Andyk: These are the gotoh planetary tuners and they are great! Very smooth and well made.

    These are beautiful. I really like how all that mahogany flows together. It goes to show that you don't need a lot of binding, purfling, and inlays to make a beautiful instrument.

    Hahaha. Yes, of course. I'm not even that old. You got me.
    But I've seen a few silent movies with live piano accompaniments and that's actually quite cool.

    Hello Pete! Sorry no classical guitars here... I started with electric guitars and then soon found out that acoustics are a lot more rewarding to build. I also heard that you might attend the Tropical winter ukulele fest this year, but was sorry to realize that you couldn't make it. I was really looking forward to meeting you there!
