I was asked to build a Australian Timber soprano for a client that lives in the UK but had spent part of her youth living and working in rural Australia. It's Australian Blackwood with a Huon Pine soundboard. The inlay is my rendition of one that is growing in my front garden.
Great news - my new Barron River Soprano has at last arrived safe and sound - and it is stunning !! You have totally surpassed yourself with this one, it's beyond my wildest dreams. A real All-Australian uke, with Aussie timbers, and even the beautiful orchid inlay modelled on a native orchid grown in your own garden - doesn't get any more authentic than that !
The build is superb, nut width is perfect for me, and it looks absolutely beautiful with the mother of pearl rosette - and it sounds tremendous, as though there's a full orchestra hiding inside, the sound is so so good !
