Here's my Kala Concert. I really miss my Lanikai Tenor and the Low G :(

How do you like your Applause? Mine is great. While not loud acoustically, that is not what it was meant for. I really should have gotten that black one to match my 1718 :D

I adore mine. It sounds lovely, works wonderfully with an amp, is gorgeous, and feels extremely nicely made. We also have a black Ovation guitar, so it feels right at home.

I use it when we do more laid-back stuff, switching to the EleUke with more aggressive effects when we want to kick it up. They both get a lot of looks, being so unusual - especially in Texas.

The Four Tenors

Here's my tenor selection (KoAloha, DS Gill, Kelii, Compass Rose).
They all sound great!
Here's a shot by our friend Evan of the EleUke and I in action during our band's most recent gig, here in Fort Worth at Lola's on 6th Street opening for a couple of other local indie rock bands:

I play the EleUke on stage hooked up to a Fender Mustang II amp, which we mic. The Mustang is set to emulate a '57 Fender Champ with a tasteful amount of distortion going on.

Here's a full group shot:

The one on the right is the first Uke ever purchased my Cordoba Baritone (20BM)

On the left is my Pono Tenor (ATC-C) love it so much!, Anyone else have one? If so how do you like it?

I got something new and crazy: the long-discussed, little-seen EleUke solid-body steel-string electric. This one's the Telecaster body.


Couple of close-ups:



And here it is alongside my Ovation tenor acoustic/electric and my EleUke jazz cutaway nylon-string solid-body electric.

Nice close-ups! Looks like a fun instrument to play
