Thanks, Ken.  I can't claim credit for the fretboard because that was off-the-shelf.  Everything else was hand built.  I might try fretting my own next time but the small frets are fiddly and the margin for error on a 17-inch scale is tiny.

So pretty, love the finish and the fret board detail!

Thanks, Dave.  One day I'll get some small fret wire and dots and try making my own fingerboards.

Beautiful uke! Nice workmanship.

Thank you, Gary and Uncle John.  Once I've got the electrics sorted out, I'll post a video.

Digly, that is brilliant.  High 9s, sir.

Nice build!  A beauty!
