That's beautiful! I love the details - the tiki on the headstock, the crown motif on the bridge, the pineapple shape. It's a genuine work of art. Amazing work!

Hello Tiki King!!
Rick Turner sent me photos of this entire show
on email! It looks to be amazing!!!
I love your uke- the bridge and the headstock.
Very, very nice!!
I was almost in this show, but I completed my first hand-built art uke right as the deadline passed (Lou Reimuller built it, I painted it).
Here's the link to mine:
Everyone should go see this show!!
