    Fantastic looking tenor/baritone. Just gorgeous.

    Love the rosette. I'm surprised that the sunburst on the walnut is as bright as it is. I would have guessed a maple or light mahogany. Really beautiful, and I'm generally not a big fan of sunburst finishes.

    The bass end has got to be outstanding.

    Was this a commissioned custom?

    Regardless, congratulations.

    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Gorgeous! Congrats! Will bring you many hours of smiles!! Is it standard 17" scale or 19"?

    My BH Grand Selmer was 19" scale and the tone was incredible. It's currently listed on Ukulele Friend as I am really not playing uke these days. It's getting a lot of interest so I suspect you will see a NUD from a new owner before too long. I hope so or I may change my mind.

    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    Curious about the relative importance of tonewood vs. the luthier? See Luthiers for a Cause to learn more!

    Yes it was a custom and Beau was kind enough to let me participate via text as he worked on the tobacco sunburst so we could get it just like i wanted with the dark edges and a darker brown center as it was at first more yellow so he kept making the brown darker for me, he’s an absolute delight to work with and a gifted luthier. I play with wound low G and wound C strings with nylons for the trebles as I prefer the warmth of nylon to the brighter tinny sound of fluorocarbons. The overall tone is fuller and warm but the Spruce gives it great volume and the sustain is incredible for a ukulele

    17” scale I wanted a standard scale because it’s just what I’m used to

    I'm the NUD fellow. Arrives tomorrow. Sorry Eddie. Too late to change your mind.
