It is interesting to build for a long term customer. I am not just building an ukulele, I’m building one that fits into their long term needs and growth as a musician. I know what they will be comparing the new one against and I have an idea of how this one will fit in their “stable.” This spruce and walnut alto is all wrapped up in rope binding, making for an old timey look. I am pleased with its projection and sustain. I can’t wait to see what Rob uses it for. The spruce was salvaged from a dulcimer maker, the walnut is from Goby and the pistachio from California Orchards.
