Dewdrop tenor uke

A dewdrop-shaped tenor uke with cherry back (look at that color!) and sides.
The answer to last week question on the wood used for the previous ukulele: basswood! It's usually bland in appearance, while this piece had that stunning wavy figure from the start (is there such a thing as curly basswood?); it also felt velvety to the touch. I'm glad I went ahead and used it as a soundboard.
