    The Brazilian tops (mahogany I presume) have a very interesting grain. Have you used that before?

    I have used Brazillian mahogany many times, but! it didn't quite look the same as this .. this tree has a coarser grain with a pinkish colour but when the FP goes on it looks different again.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Beautiful!
    I had one of your sopranos but sold it to a friend. Pretty much the only uke I seriously regret selling. But it became my friends number one uke and he played several festivals in Europe with it since. That's a consolation.

    Looking great, Ken! That Brazilian mahogany looks as though it will finish with a really striking grain pattern.

    And, lo, one of them was a 17 fret soprano.
    In years to come collectors of Ken Timms ukes will pay ridiculous amounts to secure the complete set.
    How about a limited edition of zero fret models?

    What a batch of beauties! Can't wait to see the grains pop when the FP is applied.
