Working with some new ideas and technique on this one.

Body is Tiger Myrtle and Ancient Sitka Spruce with Blackwood bindings. Inlay made from pressure dyed Maple and Faux Ivory that was then scrimshaw shaded.

Allen, your work has to be among (or atop) the list of the finest ukuleles made anywhere in the world. Stunningly beautiful!

Have any of your ukuleles been "anointed by" Jake Shimabukuro, yet?
Another damn Yank!

Thanks for the kind comments everyone. No, I'm not aware if Jake has played one of my ukuleles yet.
