Hello,

Here are the final glamour shots of the cocobolo uke I’ve been working on for the last 6 weeks. The build thread is here - viewtopic.php?t=53103

The details:
- Cocobolo back and sides (Hibdon)
- Adirondack spruce top
- Cocobolo bridge, fretboard and rosette.
- Ebony bindings
- Rubner tuners
- UV cured poly finish

I will record and post some sound clips of it, the tone is nice, it’s the first low G uke I’ve played. It has nice sustain and seems balanced, not jangly or too bright.

I’m going to post the pics a bit larger than normal. For those on PC it will seem huge. Tapatalk will scale them automatically.

Thanks for the comments. Here is my poor attempt at playing it. I recorded with a SM57 and an iRig Duo attached to an iPhone.
