Thanks John, you can open the back push the hinge in close the lid/back and it sounds open. I'll record it sounds good to me with the box sound.

Thanks pick, the Koa board only had about 10 in. of curly grain on one end but that's enough for a scarf joint and headstock.  got 4 more necks out of it.

That looks great.   Sit here and stare good.    I think you made the right choice in not having sound holes, although, nice f holes would have been tempting.  

Ukes are back big time.   Yet, I don't play mine as much as I should.   Ace build, Curly.
