    Ya didn't include a price, Gary. As I've indicated on several past projects, your work is very nice!

    Very "classy" look to this one Gary. Well done. I'm guessing with the Worth browns and the sapele that this one has a a smooth, warm, tone. Or can you tell any difference from the other woods you've built?

    I agree with NoKaOi these are very nice and classy looking. I reviewed the sound clips on YouTube. Nice sounding.

    Would you consider a radius neck?

    This sapele sounds less bright compared to the spruce tops I have built.

    If this one doesn't sell soon, it will be a keeper for me. I need something to strum on at the UWC next month.

    Yesterday, I took my Gary Gill Tenor with Douglas Fir top out to my local ukulele group strum along. This uke is a sound a cannon when I don't mute the back against my body. It's my favorite uke to play in groups as it makes about double the volume of most ukes around me. Oh, and the neck - everybody that tries My Gary Gill tenor loves the neck profile. I've gotten comments such as "plays like butter" and "your ukulele sounds really good". I just smile and say "I know".

    How has this not sold yet?!?! If I had the money, and the wife would not kill me, I would be all over this uke. Maybe it will be around for UWC and some lucky/smart person will play it and buy it
