Wood crafts person who make ukes occassionally. Have a personally made
tenor body size, concert neck flame maple and koa. Gotoh tuners.
Bright, excellent note seperation, quick decay, that is maple. Sounds great amped....has knr pickup installed.....side sound port...sound pretty finger picked...
but not a very loud uke when strummed....probably due to maple top and bottom....the wood was just so beautiful...had to do it. has a few dings and surface imperfections, nothing bad.
no fretwire used last 5 frets...ran out of wire and I do not play there anyway, ha

Looking for travel guitar trade

Impressed that you built such a pretty thing, Mike!
 
Thanks for compliment. Here is one I finished today. 3 woods, alaskan cedar top, curly maple sides, black limba bottom.
my custom cigar shape uke. Its sounds pretty awesome too. Might be my favorite yet.

My previous retirement hobby/ charity job is coming to a end ....see below.p, so embarking on a new journey.

Thank you for your time training service dogs. My sister is blind and relies heavily on her service dog.

Your builds look to be excellent.

All the best with your new endeavors.
 
Thanks so much... !!! My wife and I have raised 5 seeing eye dog pups. The most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life, without question. Will miss it, but having some health issues. But I carry every one of those lab pups we raised in my heart, River, Hadley, Elvis, Ayla and Chipper. We have never had a failure ......they are all working guide dogs and we have real high hopes for our last pup, River. She is special....a wonderful dog.
