Just finished a Tenor Uke made of all Canadian woods (granted that gives you a pretty good choice.. Top Englemann Sprce Back, sides, & neck Maple fingerboard & trim Black Walnut (granted that just squeaks in).

Finish is Royal Lac

Tuners are the new Gotoh Stealth Uke tuners which while they work great I'm not thrilled with the look...

Those are weird tuners.
What finish did you use?
I like the head shape and inlay.

Finish is Royal Lac from Shellacfinishes.com

Worked well IMHO..

Yeah tuners work great are good quality and look weird.. I doubt I will use them again...

I think a lot of Uke headstocks look a bit heavy so I was trying to avoid that..
