Bravo James,
Looks great to me.  Good job.  I am trying to get number uno done.  Soon I hope.  Tell us about the art work.

Thanks Dom,
   The art work is done as follows: Her hair is ebony, face is pearl and body is gold shell.  Her suit, red corian
and her sword is pearl with dripping blood made with dyed maple.  The ingraving was done by hand.  She is a comic book warrior named Shi.  I thought it would be cool to put her insignia on the sound hole.  This was a tricky process but I enjoyed the challenge!  I did make some mistakes but it was a lot of fun.  I took the uke to The Ukulele Festival in Pennsylvania and it was received well by other makers and performers.
   Thanks for the compliment!  Aloha

Very freaky! Too cool!
I don't think I have enough attitude to show up with that at a kanikapila!

I love the idea of a whole series of ukes with anime/comic books as a theme.  I think it would be a nice departure of the island/polynesian/ocean/old-time theme we're all hung up on.
Nice work.
