    Default Guitalele in Ambrosia Maple and Torrified Spruce - Picture Set

    This one has been a colaboration between myself and the client wanting something very special as it was his first custom instrument.

    This is the first time I've used Torrified timber, and lucky to get some uke sized soundboard all in Bear Claw figure. Paired up with Ambrosia Maple and Australian Blackwood and Ebony. The rosette uses up some of all the little pieces of ukulele timber that are just too nice to toss in the bin.

    Nice bear claw figure in that top... Was the top pre-torrified (terrified?) or did you torrify it yourself?

    I purchased 6 tops all pre-torrified.

    Went down to measure the one I am almost done, 17 1/2" yes a nice size. No where near as pretty as yours, that bevel and sound port has me thinking of Mark II. I love your work normally but this one just looks exceptional to me. The choice of woods really go together.
