Is it just my eyes or is that an extra long neck?

Looks cool though.

That's a gorgeous uke! Spruce top? Tenor?

I've been wondering about the La Patrie as well :nod: Have considered getting one for myself :) Or similar classical guitar, as the size suits me better than the giant dreadnought I used to have.

Am also eyeing a Flea soprano :D

It's a soprano with a tenor neck. :wink:

:thud:

I hadn't, Amanda. And I just about blew my lungs out drawing in a gasping breath when I did just now!! :thud:

It's a thing of beauty.

I searched and found that it was made by Dave Talsma.....that's all so far.....

Thanks, Amanda! (Wait'll my Mom sees this!)

Those ukes are so gorgeous! I'm already thinking up ideas for a FotC based one...if I won the lotto that is.

The ones with the sea turtle sound holes were gorgeous!!! :D And the uke versions of Paul McCartney's bass was quite awesome as well.

Probably too pricey though... I'm considering getting a custom Flea atm, or customising it myself. Not sure about the theme I'd go for yet. Probably not FOTC, but maybe some reference to the WIUO seeing as I owe my uke craze to them :)
