We are surrounded here in the east (Pennsylvania and Florida) by wonderful wood so I see no reason to use tropical hardwood that came from who-knows-where at who-knows-what environmental cost. Because of all these great local choices I rarely build exactly the same thing twice.
    I strive to get the very best sound from my instruments and think they can compete with any other instrument. If you would like to see the current inventory (and a bit more of the story) it is at http://jupiteruke.com/ukuleles-for-sale/. If you are in the Eastern Pennsylvania area over the summer, or the Jupiter Florida area over the winter, you are welcome to stop by, see the shop, and play whatever instruments I have in inventory.

    Beautiful! I see the ukes, and I see the pricing, but do they go together? The ones you show have sound ports, for example. Would I have to add $50 to your listed price to buy one with a sound port? Are there any other extras on those ukes?
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    The price is the base price based on size plus any optional things. See previous post here at the bottom of Page 2.

    You've definitely got some beautiful looking and great sounding instruments Jon. Jim Hanks' video introducing his baritone guilele definitely sparked my curiosity ~
    Talk less, play more . . . .

    This post will veer into Uke Talk territory, but wow, I am the thrilled new owner of Concert # 68. I'm not big on doing NUD posts, but I have to say Concert # 68 is spectacular: beautiful wood, beautiful workmanship, beautiful tone. It sounds like the angels are playing, and believe me, that's not due to my abilities. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Mr. Dale, so if you're on the fence about one of his lovely instruments, maybe this will be the little push you need.

    I am a very happy owner of two Jupiter ukes. Jonathan is great to work with. I can see a third one in the future...

    The following link is my NUD of my first Jupiter Tenor.
