This was a great build with beautiful woods and went to a very capable player! See them on their YouTube posts as “ElementalFunk”, where they play some great stuff from the 70’s and 80’s. Together with a childhood friend of mine, Brian Yamamoto, they play some of those Hawaiian radio favorites too!
I’m always excited to build for “players”, although it can be hard to rise up to their expectations sometimes, but Wade was great to work with and helped by giving me some “lee way“ in the build. He chose some woods from my exotic wood stash and good input on the specs.
The look is amazing but, more importantly, the sound is awesome! Thanks for the opportunity to build your dream Ukulele!
