First soprano - teaser

I've just completed the finishing process on the first uke of this season, a soprano. I still have to fashion a proper nut and saddle before stringing it and trying it out for sound. Until then, I'm enjoying the look of the finished wood, especially for the back (bird's eye maple and bloodwood) and the sides (curly maple and bird's eye veneer for the "shoulders"). I first started work on this about ten months ago and only now can I see the real character of the wood, which really exceeds my expectations.

  1. I could look at this all day and only dream of holding it and playing it. Thanks.
