I AM DELIGHTED TO REPORT that Monica in California has sent her deposit on one of these beauties and will have her pick of the litter. When they are completed I will send her photos and play them for her over the phone so she can make her choice. Because the backs, and for that matter the entire instrument is individually made, each uke will have a slightly different voice. The carving of the back surely is the largest factor in that difference. She will not be disappointed, these concert pinecones are amazing instruments.
