    Duane, that's a sweet looking uke. Someone's going to get a fine instrument.

    oh dear, where's my medication. Lord what a stunning instrument.

    This should disappear in a heartbeat. Just a BTW, I was fortunate enough to play one of Duane's macadamia concert scale ukes. Just an incredible instrument in every respect...tonally, aesthetically...wonderful. Sold , like so many others, as I was in a terrible financial mess...a HUGE regret...had I the money in my hands this soprano would already be gone.

    Macadamia wood is spectacular, deeply rich and elegant. Duane this is a beauty.

    Thanks guys. Macadamia is a wonderful wood to work with, bends like butter even with the wild looking grain. The natural color is that golden warm yellow/orange, so I couldn't bear to add any additional color. As it ages it should really be nice. I bought this wood years ago with a bunch of mango and koa, so I figured I'd better start using it for ukes.

    I now own the concert macadamia that Eugene sold. If this soprano is half as nice as the concert it is an absolute steal at $600. If I hadn't just paid for tuition, books, a custom uke and this macadamia black bear concert I would jump at owning my first soprano uke. Somebody buy this thing before I start looking for things to sell. =)
