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

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.

Likeke:
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.
