#331- Charity Uke For California Fire Relief- Port Orford Cedar, Mahogany and Pistachio Tenor Ukulele

Last year, our little town was threatened by fires and we also had a few colleagues lose their shops to fire. I had already planned this as a stock instrument when Nicole suggested we sell it to benefit the folks in California who are impacted by all the fires this season. By chance, I had already set aside pieces of wood that were orphaned and destined for the burn pile. There is nothing wrong with the mahogany for the back, sides and neck except that they were all missing a book matched piece. The Port Orford top looks and sounds great, despite the four small knots. The pistachio fretboard is truly unique, with a deep red spot in a cream field representing the hot spots on a fire map. I think the best way to deal with this is to sell it as an auction on ebay, so we can get the most out of it. We will be sending some money to the Red Cross and some money in gift cards to a musician/luthier in Chico to go directly to the affected communities.
