    Default beautiful, you lucky dog you!

    Wow, what a beautiful ukulele!. I love the head stock design too! Very artfully done. It makes me want to have him make one for me too!! I am not the tiki type, but a tree or a waterfall, or moon/ stars/ mountains...

    One thing I wanted to clear up, the black bridge patch doesn't have anything to do with the pickup. It's something I learned from David Hurd (Ukuleles by Kawika) in Hilo who builds (or used to) a wonderful sounding ukulele. It's a bias ply carbon fiber sheet that is .030" thick, feathered at its' edges. It's extremely light and stiff for it's size and I've used it on all my ukes for the last year. I have great respect for lutherie tradition but at the same time I never shy away from trying something new.

    I'll be right over. Set an extra plate for dinner

    Ya know...I had a feeling that comment would come back and bite me in the butt. Hey...I took a shot.
    After looking at it further (after I posted) it did look a little further from where the bridge would be. All of this carbon talk makes me think of:

    I have to confess, I've handled your uke. Dropped in on the Moore Bettah workshop this weekend and had the priveledge of seeing your uke, just about built, with my own eyes. Dude, I'm glad you gave praise where praise was due. I have been saying for a while that Mr. Moore and his little shop in Opihikao is one of Hawaii's best kept secrets when it comes to ukuleles, well, no longer a secret I guess huh?

    The uke is simply amazing. The pictures say it all, I don' t need to say anymore except that seeing it in person is even better. Spooner, I know you will love this uke. I didn't get to play it, but can only imagine the sweet sound of this uke. In a few days, another UU member will be posting pics of his uke, I'll comment on that one since I was able to play it.

    Chuck is definitely an artist and artist work best when you give them the freedom to pour their creative juices into their work. It takes a bit of trust, but in Moore's work, trust should never be an issue.

    BTW, got my wood selected, now the wait, tic, toc, tic, toc.

    Define..."handled."

    I have no doubt that I will love this one. I've been loving Chuck's uke from afar for awhile now...and yes I know how sick that sounds lol. That's real cool that you're able to drop by and see what's happening at the ole mango Tree house. I'd love to drop in and check it out for myself...only problem is it takes about 12-16 hours for me to get there.

    Ah...you're in line eh? Well my best advice is to try and not think about it too much when the process begins. Of course...I went on a UAS binge to keep me occupied. I know own eleventy billion ukuleles.

    Hmm...I just heard a certain sound clip.

    If I could steal one uke from any UU member, this would be it. Beautiful wood, and Chuck's inlay work is second to none. Would love to own a Moore Bettah in the near future.

    Although, if you get sick of your Pineapple Sunday once the new baby arrives, I'll take that instead. :B

    Wow Spooner-she is absolutely gorgeuous! I know exactly how you are feeling as Chuck just finished my uke as well and I am guessing we should be receiving our ukes on the same day. I plan on posting pics as well.

    Chuck really outdid himself with the detail on your uke. I was joking with Chuck how I sort of felt like I was preparing for my uke as if I was preparing for the birth of a child. If I get her on Saturday, I might even take her to the park on Sunday.
    Congratulations on your new Moore Bettah Ukulele! Have fun with her

    Henry,
    I see your baby in one of the first pictures, it's the naked uke hanging on the wall. I know it's yours because of the lefty cut-away. Ain't she cute hanging next to her brother Spooner-lele. Spooner-lele looks like the wild child in comparison to yours, but I can attest, your baby's got a beautiful voice! Almost took her home with me!
