    Default Acabo'oe's completed Hana Lima Ukulele

    Well, here it is. My fall Hana Lima Ia class is over, and I am kinnda sad to not be going there n e more, but I had a great experience.
    Mike, and Asa are great people.

    It is made of Bubinga, Western Red Cedar, Ebony, Spruce, and Koa, with Paua Abalone and White MoP inlays.
    It is tuned Low G with Aquila strings.
    Hope you guys like it.

    Bob, what a small world. Sharon is my girlfriend's brother-in-law's mom.

    I feel awesome about it.
    The way Mike breaks everything down, anyone can understand it, weather you have been a luthier for 14 years, or never touched an instrument before in your life.
    Now, I need to just try and retain all of the stuff the Mike taught me and Sharon, and apply it to my future builds.

    Aloha
    Bob

    Default Great Uke

    Hi Bob,
    I'm glad to see that you have finished your ukulele that is nearly the same as the one I am building from Hana Lima kit. Mine is just taking me a bit longer due to other life's commitments! I've the sides bent, the heel trimmed and now I just got inspired from your finished uke. I also have the same rosette too! By the way, I saw your other uke on Hana Lima's message board. Pretty cool shape, how does it play? Way to go Bob.
