Hello to all from Greece.

Recently i finished my 2nd ukulele and just wanted to post it to the experts ;)
The top is spruce,sides and back bubinga, and the neck is mahogany with rosewood reinforcement.
I also added my first soundport...
Nice warm sound to my ears.
Many thanks

Yiannis

Hello, Yiannis,
I'm not an expert. I'm a hobby builder. But I think your concert ukulele is a fine looking instrument. Well done!

I love it! Nice work. How thick is the top? Don't forget to post a sound clip. I'd like to see a pic of the bracing too. . .

The top is flat.
Only the back is domed with a small 18' radius.
