Here is a solid all mahogany wonderful-sounding tenor-sized ukulele. Mahogany wood offers a warm, mellow tone. The mahogany sides and back are cut, shaped and bent by hand. The Spanish-style construction, and the meticulous graduation and fan-bracing of the top all add to the impressive tonal quality. The hand-carved 19-fret neck is of strong, stable mahogany with ebony on the headstock. The proprietary Mele non-adjustable steel truss rod allows the neck to be amazingly slim and comfortable without fear of warpage. Here’s some info about dimensions, # of frets, etc. http://reviews.ebay.com/The-Ukulele-Hawaii-apos-s-gift-to-the-world_W0QQugidZ10000000000865181
