Hi Likeke,
Nice work! That's a fine looking instrument. When they look that good, they usually sound good too. ;)

Thanks Uker, it does sound good.  I'll make a plug for the MISI Acoustic Trio pickup.  Nice sound with no coloration on the acoustic sound.

That one is pretty.
What woods did you use and what finish system did you use.

Unkabob, I used sitka spruce for the top, Hanalima ebony fingerboard, bridge, and koa (half-set).  All the materials except for the top, the binding, headplate veneer and finish are Hanalima.  Oh, I used Tusq for the nut and saddle. The finish is Stewmac Colortone water-based lacquer sprayed on.

A very pretty and classic looking uke. Congrats on a great build and thanks for sharing the results with us. I really like the headstock, very tasteful and very classy looking.
