    Default Any Boat Paddle Fans out there?

    Hey Folks,

    I acquired a used Boat Paddle tenor last week.
    It has a solid mahogany body, hard maple neck with integral maple fretboard, maple bridge, with low G Ko'olau Golds.

    Wow! the sound is awesome! Loud, clear, Deep, Rich, with perfect intonation.
    This is my first BP uke. It won't be my last either.
    Incredible design, especially the nut.

    Anyone else have a Boat Paddle they like this much?

    Here are some pics of it.

    OK Ray.

    Here is a little sound sample of my Boat Paddle Tenor.
    (And yes, I always play this bad.)

    I really like how it sounds. The uke is about 3 years old. So it has been nicely seasoned.

    I would like to get one after hearing Deach's, but have not yet had the pleasure of playing one. They look and sound fantastic IMO

    I have an M style concert on my "list" of future UAS purchases. They simply look amazing! Bet they sound and play amazing too. Appears there are a lot of custom things you can do with them during the build.

    Someday perhaps...

    I think BPs are cool especially their round (M?) model, much closer to a pineapple in shape.
