    Great looking instrument. Great sound. Perhaps too good to sell?

    Nope.
    Oh- it has a BRW bridge plate, which i sanded most off but i left the middle of it.

    I think the sound hole on this one is very slightly larger then the first one., like 2/32nds" all round.

    I have my eye on this thread.

    Mmmm...ziricoate and redwood. Your marquetry is superb as usual Beau. A very tasty looking instrument. Sounds good too (what's up with all the vibrato? Just kidding!). My only question is what is that lovely finish? Looks like spun honey. Nitro or acrylate or...?

    this new uke is still in pieces- that top pic had a photo filter on it to bring out the colour a bit- the rosette will be black MOP and red recon stone and other bits
