    Are we going to show some appreciation for Rob? Here is the apple of my eye which Rob custom built for me

    Beautiful! Rob is obviously a master craftsman. I love his use of reclaimed wood, that's wonderful. Would love to try one someday.

    That is a stunner ripock. I can see why you are so pleased with it.

    Thanks, guys. All 19 frets are playable, I get seven pentatonic/modal shapes, and it is reclaimed wood from a London park. It cured my UAS. I don't even play my Kamaka that much any more.

    My Rob Collins Meranti Soprano is my absolute favourite of my small collection. I had met Rob a couple of times, but I actually got that uke from him at one of the 'Snowdonia Ukulele Gatherings' organised by a lovely bloke known as Sunny Jim. And Rob and his performing partner Claire had played at our Uke club
    once, as a favour to me. They play as 'PerilousMojo' and were a delight to watch and hear!
    Soprano is what does it for me every time!*

    *Other Scale sizes are available and very popular with many players.
