Rosette design for "The Bee".
This is a curly walnut back for "The Bee", which will be a Low-G Tenor ukulele for my daughter.
Here is a Macassar Ebony back in the go-bar deck.
A Cocobolo back for Andy's "guitalele", which I would rather call a soprano guitar. It will have six strings, tuned up a fifth. We are going to use a 19" scale on this instrument.
Cat not included...
