    Default New Uke Design Day

    Aloha Kakou,
    I have an April build slot with Willie Wixom for a Concert Ukulele.
    Have been working out details and design ideas for a few months.
    With the help of Dodie (my Fiance), my design is now complete. Mahalo, Maihani.....
    After the experience of designing my B&D Special, I'm super excited about my new build.
    Talked to Willie and he's just as excited to see what I have in store for him this time. Told him a little bit but waiting for a face to face to discuss it in detail. Should be towards the end of March.
    Have'nt been this excited about a uke in along time.

    I'm sure after seeing the pics of your first design, this is going to be an awesome uke as well! Can't wait to see it!

    Eh, sneek peek!

    Nana ka maka; ho`olohe ka pepeiao;
    pa`a ka waha.

    Observe with the eyes; listen with the ears; shut the mouth.
    Thus one learns.

    Aloha Scott,
    This one should have the same visual effects as my B&D. As always, looking for uniqueness..........Bo.....

    Aloha dkcrown,
    Mahalo for your comment. No wings on this one but it'll look sweet enough so Angels may want to try it out along with their harps, lol............Bo............

    Aloha Gary,
    I can't wait either. I know it'll look and sound good. Want it to be my Go to Concert.
    Fishing hasn't been that good but who cares. Just enjoying being with Dodie................Bo...........

    Aloha Bruddah Stan,
    Sorry I can't share my build designs until it's done. Dodie is the only one who knows what it'll be.
    Will be in Honolulu next Friday and of course will hook up with you. Looking forward to trying out your new toys.
    I'm bringing the 2 ukes you want to see and try.................Bo............
