LUTHIERS.  If you're thinking of having a uke built to your own specification you need a reputable luthier.  Yes, it's gonna cost you, but the result is a one-off that's all yours.  Here are two you might consider - they both do beautiful work.


**Barron River Guitars & Ukuleles.  Allen McFarlen is in Cairns, way up north in Queensland.  He recently (July 2018) built a truly glorious long-neck Concert uke for me.      Go see his web site.


**Wilkinson Guitars & Ukuleles.  Mark Wilkinson is in Bulli, NSW.   He too makes beautiful instruments.   Look here.

Perth Live Ukulele cafe Klub (PLUcK), outside the Blue Duck Cafe on the beach at Cottesloe, Western Australia, 9am every Saturday morning.  It's like a jam session in a  bus stop, but much nicer.   Email for time and location
