    I saw that one too. What a beautiful instrument!

    I also agree with gochugogi about the Kala elites. I’ve played the Doghair as well as the Koa, and both sound fantastic. They are more open in sound than the Kanileas. Also, the necks on Ponos and Kalas are much thicker than Kanileas or KoAlohas. That’s another factor to keep in mind when making a big purchase.

    Stunning! I’ve never seen anything like it.

    Yes, there's a Doghair Elite tenor on Reverb for $570.00 shipped, also taking offers.

    That Sycamore is gorgeous! Do you know his price range off-hand?

    No need, found it: $775 starting point for Tenor

    That sycamore you speak of happens to be my new beauty! I’ll make a NUD this week. It sounds amazing as well. Jon makes amazing ukes. They are deep and rich in sound...much different than a Kanilea.
